Genetics in NDIT

A total of 943 NDIT participants were genotyped in 2017 using the Illumina Global Screening Array on previously collected blood and saliva samples. This permits genetic association studies with a wide range of diverse phenotypes (e.g., nicotine dependence, blood pressure, body weight, depressive symptoms) using candidate gene approaches or methods based on genetic risk scores.
