Metadata for columns in bigQuery database?

Hi there,

I am wondering if there is documentation somewhere explaining the columns in the tables in the bigQuery database?

Currently curious about the meaning of the column ‘is_cc’ in the sa_gwas table, but would be nice to see descriptions of all the columns for these tables somewhere.


Hi @bycgen, and thank you for the question!

I have moved your topic over to the Feature Requests category, because adding additional explanations of our schema and the different columns to the documentation is on our to-do list :slight_smile:

In the sa_gwas table, the is_cc column indicates whether the study is case-control or not. The column names are explained in the readme of our genetics-sumstat-data repository, if you want to take a look.

Ah, great, thank you! That’s perfect.
