International Genetics & Translational Research in Transplantation Network (iGeneTRAIN) has recently generated genome-wide genotyping data on > 50,000 DNA samples from a number of international transplant studies (www.igenetrain.org). The majority of the samples were genotyped in an Axiom array – heavily based on the UK biobank array with additional content specifically tailored for transplantation studies. We have investigated a spectrum of phenotypes and post-transplant outcomes primarily using single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) but more recently we have begun large-scale copy number variant (CNV) analyses. We will present some of the existing CNV datasets for cause-of-transplant – as well as our ongoing studies in this area using the Axiom CNV software.
