The Generation Scotland: Scottish Family Health Study (GS:SFHS) is a family-based population cohort with DNA, biological samples, socio-demographic, psychological and clinical data from ~24,000 adult volunteers across Scotland. Although data collection was cross-sectional, GS:SFHS became a prospective cohort due to the ability to link to routine Electronic Health Record (EHR) data. Over 20,000 participants were selected for genotyping using a genome-wide array. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) were used to test the effects of variants on the uric acid phenotype from the EHR. Results replicated a known association and the dataset contains genome-wide association summary statistics for this project.
