    • ENIGMA and the individual: Predicting factors that affect the brain in 35 countries worldwide. 

      Thompson, Paul M; Andreassen, Ole A; Arias-Vasquez, Alejandro; Bearden, Carrie E; Boedhoe, Premika S; Brouwer, Rachel M; Buckner, Randy L; ... (72 authors) (Neuroimage, 2017-01-15)
      In this review, we discuss recent work by the ENIGMA Consortium (http://enigma.ini.usc.edu) - a global alliance of over 500 scientists spread across 200 institutions in 35 countries collectively analyzing brain imaging, ...
    • Genome-wide association study identifies a new melanoma susceptibility locus at 1q21.3. 

      Macgregor, Stuart; Montgomery, Grant W; Liu, Jimmy Z; Zhao, Zhen Zhen; Henders, Anjali K; Stark, Mitchell; Schmid, Helen; ... (52 authors) (Nature genetics, 2011-10-09)
      We performed a genome-wide association study of melanoma in a discovery cohort of 2,168 Australian individuals with melanoma and 4,387 control individuals. In this discovery phase, we confirm several previously characterized ...
    • Genome-wide association study identifies three new melanoma susceptibility loci. 

      Barrett, Jennifer H; Iles, Mark M; Harland, Mark; Taylor, John C; Aitken, Joanne F; Andresen, Per Arne; Akslen, Lars A; ... (76 authors) (Nature genetics, 2011-10-09)
      We report a genome-wide association study for melanoma that was conducted by the GenoMEL Consortium. Our discovery phase included 2,981 individuals with melanoma and 1,982 study-specific control individuals of European ancestry, ...
    • Harmonization of Neuroticism and Extraversion phenotypes across inventories and cohorts in the Genetics of Personality Consortium: an application of Item Response Theory. 

      van den Berg, Stéphanie M; de Moor, Marleen HM; McGue, Matt; Pettersson, Erik; Terracciano, Antonio; Verweij, Karin JH; Amin, Najaf; ... (88 authors) (Behavior genetics, 2014-07)
      Mega- or meta-analytic studies (e.g. genome-wide association studies) are increasingly used in behavior genetics. An issue in such studies is that phenotypes are often measured by different instruments across study cohorts, ...
    • The genetic architecture of the human cerebral cortex. 

      Grasby, Katrina L; Jahanshad, Neda; Painter, Jodie N; Colodro-Conde, Lucía; Bralten, Janita; Hibar, Derrek P; Lind, Penelope A; ... (367 authors) (Science (New York, N.Y.), 2020-03)
      The cerebral cortex underlies our complex cognitive capabilities, yet little is known about the specific genetic loci that influence human cortical structure. To identify genetic variants that affect cortical structure, ...
