The Bipolar Sequencing Consortium for Combined Analyses and Follow-UpThe International Bipolar Sequencing Consortium brings together whole-genome and exome sequence data from multiple case-control and family studies of bipolar disorder for the purpose of investigating the genetic architecture of this condition. Data from multiple institutions and studies will be combined and harmonized to examine associations of genetic variation with bipolar disorder. De-identified exome sequence data from 483 individuals with bipolar disorder and 483 matched controls will be provided from the Multi-Ethnic Genome-wide Association Study of Bipolar Disorder at Kaiser Permanente Northern California, which will participate in analyses of the harmonized dataset from all study sites.
