The authors wish to thank all CHARGE investigators who have generated the analyses and manuscripts that constitute the summary statistics provided in the dbGaP portal. This work was generated without funding for the project. The CHARGE Consortium infrastructure grant to support meetings, working groups and young investigators was provided to B.M.P. (5 R01 HL105756) from the NIH. This research was also supported in part by the Intramural Research Program of the NIH, National Library of Medicine.
