This research is supported by the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council (1080157, 1087889) and the Australian Research Council (DP160102126, FT160100229). This research has been conducted using the UK Biobank Resource. UK Biobank Research Ethics Committee (REC) approval number is 11/NW/0382. Our reference number approved by UK Biobank is 14575. GERA data came from a grant, the Resource for Genetic Epidemiology Research in Adult Health and Aging (RC2 AG033067; Schaefer and Risch, PIs) awarded to the Kaiser Permanente Research Program on Genes, Environment, and Health (RPGEH) and the UCSF Institute for Human Genetics. The RPGEH was supported by grants from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Wayne and Gladys Valley Foundation, the Ellison Medical Foundation, Kaiser Permanente Northern California, and the Kaiser Permanente National and Northern California Community Benefit Programs. The RPGEH and the Resource for Genetic Epidemiology Research in Adult Health and Aging are described in the GERA website (see Web Resources). This study makes use of data generated by the Wellcome Trust Case-Control Consortium. A full list of the investigators who contributed to the generation of the WTCCC data is available online. Funding for the WTCCC project was provided by the Wellcome Trust under awards 076113, 085475, and 090355.
