Imputation-Based Genomic Coverage Assessment

In this era of limited research budgets, it is becoming more important than ever to tailor study designs to be as cost-efficient as possible. Since head-to-head coverage data was not available from the respective genotyping array vendors, we undertook a collaborative project with the University of Washington to generate comparative datasets and evaluate genomic coverage and power for currently utilized genotyping arrays.  The resulting publication, available in the G3: Genes, Genomics, Genetics journal, is intended to be a practical guide to assist with the choice of genotyping array. The source data, which is available here, can be utilized in the design of custom content for studies by informing the investigator on whether a desired variant is already well covered after imputation or not in their desired population.
