AbstractThe National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) Catalog of Published Genome- Wide Association Studies or GWAS Catalog provides a publicly available, manually curated collection of published GWA studies assaying at least 100,000 SNPs and all SNP-trait associations with p-values <1x 10-5. The Catalog includes 1657 curated publications and 10,983 SNPs. In addition to the SNP-trait association data, the Catalog also publishes a quarterly diagram of all SNP-trait associations mapped to the SNPs’ chromosomal locations. The Catalog can be accessed via a tabular web interface, via a dynamic visualisation on the
