UKBB-LD – UK Biobank Linkage Disequilibrium


UKBB-LD is summary linkage disequilibrium (LD) matrices files computed from UK Biobank (UKBB) based on N=337K British-ancestry individuals. The LD information is stored as 2,763 3Mb-long regions spanning the entire genome. This data set can be used for post-Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) analysis such as fine-mapping. The data set has been generated from Alkes Price’s group at Harvard and can be publicly downloaded from this link.
