MAGIC: the Meta-Analyses of Glucose and Insulin-related traits Consortium

MAGIC represents a collaborative effort to combine data from multiple GWAS to identify additional loci that affect glycemic and metabolic traits. Our genetic studies of fasting glucose levels were originally organized as four distinct consortia: (i) European Network for Genetic and Genomic Epidemiology (ENGAGE), combining data from deCODE, Northern Finland Birth Cohort 1966 (NFBC1966), Netherlands Twins Register/Netherlands Study of Depression and Anxiety (NTR/NESDA) and the Rotterdam Study; (ii) Genetics of Energy Metabolism (GEM), a meta-analysis of the Lausanne (CoLaus) and TwinsUK scans; (iii) DFS, involving the Diabetes Genetics Initiative (DGI), Finland-United States Investigation of NIDDM Genetics (FUSION) and SardiNIA scans; and (iv) the Framingham Heart Study (FHS).
