The NIH database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP) resource program has announced the availability of a shared, controlled-access dataset from the longitudinal Cleveland Family Study for analyses by approved investigators. The dataset includes > 1,400 genotypes and > 2,300 data variables from as many as four sleep apnea evaluations over 16 years.

dbGaP is an NIH initiative to archive and distribute the results of studies for investigating the interaction of genotype and phenotype. Access to controlled data in dbGaP is granted by the NIH through an application process, governed by a data use agreement, and may require annual progress reports. You must have an institutional affiliation and research credentials to request individual level human data from dbGaP.
