Study Description

The ICBP consortium is an international effort to investigate blood-pressure genetics. The consortium was formed by two parent consortia, the CHARGE-BP consortium (Cohorts for Heart and Aging Research in Genomic Epidemiology - blood pressure) and the GBPGEN consortium (Global Blood Pressure Genetics Consortium).

In a first effort we performed genome-wide association analyses based on genome-wide SNPs imputed to HapMap for systolic and diastolic blood pressure (SBP and DBP) and mean arterial pressure and pulse pressure (MAP and PP). Additional studies are under way.
