Is it possible to get all possibly causal variants from a GWAS through OpenTargets Genetics?


It is my understanding that lead variants are expanded to include tag variants using LD expansion if the study has no summary statistics, but via credible set analysis if the study does have summary statistics. I was wondering if it is possible to access the results of the LD expansion for all studies, even if the summary statistics were available and credible set analysis was performed. If so, would those data be available via FTP?

Thanks in advance

Thank you for reaching out and for your interest in Open Targets Genetics.

We will be looking into the option of making LD expansion results available for all studies (with and without sumstats) on our FTP.
Stay tuned for more info!

Best wishes,


Thank you! I will definitely keep an eye out!
