MAGIC (the Meta-Analyses of Glucose and Insulin-related traits Consortium)
MAGIC (the Meta-Analyses of Glucose and Insulin-related traits Consortium) represents a collaborative effort to combine data from multiple GWAS to identify additional loci that impact on glycemic and metabolic traits.
MAGIC investigators have initially studied fasting glucose, fasting insulin, 2h glucose and HBA1c, as well as performed meta-analysis of more sophisticated measures of insulin secretion and sensitivity. Through these efforts, dozens of loci influencing these traits have been idenfified, a subset of which also influence risk of type 2 diabetes.
We are releasing results from our meta-analyses and these can be accessed through the data downloads pages.
