Title
A reference panel of 64,976 haplotypes for genotype imputation
Published in
Nature Genetics, August 2016
DOI 10.1038/ng.3643
Pubmed ID
Abstract

We describe a reference panel of 64,976 human haplotypes at 39,235,157 SNPs constructed using whole-genome sequence data from 20 studies of predominantly European ancestry. Using this resource leads to accurate genotype imputation at minor allele frequencies as low as 0.1% and a large increase in the number of SNPs tested in association studies, and it can help to discover and refine causal loci. We describe remote server resources that allow researchers to carry out imputation and phasing consistently and efficiently.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 169. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 01 August 2019.
All research outputs
#87,239
of 13,943,890 outputs
Outputs from Nature Genetics
#237
of 6,252 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#3,445
of 263,657 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nature Genetics
#12
of 75 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,943,890 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 99th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 6,252 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 32.6. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 96% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 263,657 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 98% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 75 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its contemporaries.
