About the project

The Sleep Disorder Knowledge Portal is being developed by a team of scientists and software engineers at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard in collaboration with a team at Massachusetts General Hospital, and many collaborators from across the globe, with funding from the NIH National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. The platform seeks to provide comprehensive quality-assured summary genome-wide association results and the statistical and visualization tools to enable testing of the most compelling hypotheses as rapidly as possible, translating genomic data into biological and therapeutic insights.

Using the portal

  • Are you interested in looking up a specific gene in our GWAS results? You can enter a gene name in the search bar above and see the "Gene Page Guide" for further information.
  • Would you like to download the summary statistics for our recently published GWAS of Insomnia Symptoms? See the "UK Biobank Sleep Traits GWAS" section of the Data page.
