  1. Automated and manual (web search) curation of details regarding authors ranked within the 10 highest GWAS H-Index (an estimate of the importance, significance, and broad impact of a scientist’s cumulative GWAS-related research contributions). N-Papers refer to the number of times the author features as an author (at any position) within the Catalog. Information on citations comes from PubMed Central. Betweenness and Degree centrality calculated with Network-X. All characters converted to ASCII to ensure maximum matches of the same authors across papers
