[…] the 1000 genomes project reference panel (1000g phase i integrated release v.3 (march 2012)).20 chunking was performed using chunkchromosome, phasing using mach (v.1.0.18)21 and imputation using minimac (v.2012.10.3).22 variants where imputation quality (r2) was <0.3 or maf <1% were excluded., data on age and smoking were checked for consistency over time. where possible, missing data […]

[…] against previous genotype data, where available. no maf cut-off was applied at this stage. imputation was done on cleaned genotypes in three phases—chunking, phasing and imputing—using the mach1 and minimac software [61, 62] and applying the strategy described at minimac:1000 genomes imputation cookbook. the resulting file contained ~4.5 million autosomal snps (r2 > 0.3, maf > 0.001).

[…] 1094 individuals and 2188 haplotypes and the program mach 1.0.16. the variants in the build-37 november 2010 release of 1000 genomes (phase 1-α interim) were imputed into the phased haplotypes using minimac. this resulted in 37 426 733 imputed snps. we excluded snps that were imputed with an r2imp<0.5. this left 10 879 115 snps and after filtering for minor allele frequency (maf)>0.01 […]

[…] was between 0.35 and 0.50 to avoid incorrect strand alignment., phasing of all samples and imputing cross-missing platform snps was done with mach 1 [19,20]. the phased data were then imputed with minimac [21] in batches of around 500 individuals for 561 chromosome chunks obtained by the chunkchromosome program [22]. after imputation, dna confirmed mz twins were re-duplicated back […]

[…] based on cluster plots (genotyped) and imputation quality (r2 ≥ 0.80) for imputed snps, hardy-weinberg equilibrium (p-value), and missingness (% threshold). imputation was performed using mach and minimac with 1000 genomes phase i v 3 european reference panels for white subjects. cosmopolitan reference panels were used for copdgene aa subjects. variants with a minor allele frequency (maf) < […]
