[…] were defined by combining lead snps within a 250 kb window and all snps in ld of at least r2 = 0.6 with one of the independent snps. a gene-based analysis was carried out on all snp output using the magma software15 with default settings (snp-wise (mean) model for each gene), and assuming a constant sample size for all genes. a bonferroni-adjusted p-value of 0.05/18,251 = 2.7 × 10−6 was used […]

[…] for all genes. a bonferroni-adjusted p-value of 0.05/18,251 = 2.7 × 10−6 was used to identify significant genes. the 1000 genomes phase 3 data16 were used to map ld in both the independent locus and magma analyses., to test for pleiotropic associations between snps and ad and gene expression/dna methylation in the brain, summary data-based mendelian randomisation (smr) was performed17. gwas […]

[…] window to include gene regulatory regions and maf ≥ 0.05. the genes were encoded by ensembl identifiers (release 75, genome assembly h19). pathways were assigned competitive p-values using magma v1.05 [29] which assesses whether a pathway is more associated with a trait than other pathways, and takes into account linkage disequilibrium (ld). the reference data used for ld […]
