Representation of ancestry data in the GWAS Catalog search interface ( Ancestry-related data are found in the Studies and Associations tables (underlined in black) when searching the Catalog. This figure shows the results of a search for PubMed Identifier 27145994. The sample description can be found in the Studies table, either by pressing “Expand all Studies” or the “+” on the study of interest (highlighted in red). Sample ancestry is captured in two forms: (1) detailed description (highlighted in blue); and (2) ancestry category (highlighted in green). The latter follows the format: sample size, category, (country of recruitment). In cases where multiple ancestries are included in a study, the ancestry associated with a particular association is found as an annotation in the p value column in the Associations table (highlighted in pink)
