GWAS publications preprint updated

By | March 20, 2018

We’ve posted an updated version of our bioRxiv preprint¬†on the ability of genome-wide association studies to spur subsequent research into newly associated genes. Most importantly, we found that the effect of GWAS has declined dramatically, suggesting that researchers are following-up on GWAS much less than they used to. Although our work does not show why recent GWAS have much less impact than earlier GWAS, we hope it motivates efforts to encourage GWAS follow-up.
