High-density genotyping study involving 10,619 individuals with ankylosing spondylitis and 15,145 controls of European, East Asian and Latin American ancestry using the Illumina ImmunoChip platform. A total of 128,935 SNPs were available for analysis after the QC process. For relatedness analysis, PLINK (v1.07) was used to calculate identity-by-descent. Association analysis and population stratification control was perfomed using linear mixed models as implemented in FaST-LMM(v1.05). Imputation was carried out with MACH and Minimac. Association at genome-wide significance (P < 5x10-8) was observed for 25 loci, including the MHC, out of which 13 were novel. 
Study Type
Case-Control Study
Exclusion Criteria
Samples were excluded due to:-
  • Low call rate (<95%) - before merging data sets
  • Low call rate (<98%) - after merging data sets
  • Duplication
Markers were excluded due to:-
  • Low call rate(<95%) - before merging data sets
  • Low call rate(<98%) - after merging data sets
  • Deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium in controls (P < 1x10-6)
  • Differential missingness between collections (P < 1x10-7)
