TOPMed Acknowledgements

TOPMed papers require acknowledgments for TOPMed sequencing/omics as well as for study-specific data. Study-specific acknowledgments are specified in the "Acknowledgment Statement" under "Study Attribution" on the "Study" tab of each accession's dbGaP home page and on our Study-specific Acknowledgements page; general TOPMed acknowledgments are described below.

Please use the following template paragraph to acknowledge the use of TOPMed data in publications:

Whole genome sequencing (WGS) for the Trans-Omics in Precision Medicine (TOPMed) program was supported by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI).  WGS for "NHLBI TOPMed: <insert Parent Study name>" (<insert phs# with version extension)>) was performed at <insert sequencing center name (grant/contract number) from the Table below>. [Repeat this sentence for each TOPMed Study as appropriate.]  Centralized read mapping and genotype calling, along with variant quality metrics and filtering were provided by the TOPMed Informatics Research Center (3R01HL-117626-02S1; contract HHSN268201800002I).  Phenotype harmonization, data management, sample-identity QC, and general study coordination were provided by the TOPMed Data Coordinating Center (3R01HL-120393-02S1; contract HHSN268201800001I). We gratefully acknowledge the studies and participants who provided biological samples and data for TOPMed. <Insert additional study-specific acknowledgments>

For example, to acknowledge use of TOPMed data from the Framingham Heart Study and the Jackson Heart study (note that here we added a phs# extension “v1.p1” to denote the actual version that was downloaded and used; version numbers vary over time, so are not included in the table below):

Whole genome sequencing (WGS) for the Trans-Omics in Precision Medicine (TOPMed) program was supported by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI). WGS for “NHLBI TOPMed: Whole Genome Sequencing and Related Phenotypes in the Framingham Heart Study” (phs000974.v1.p1) was performed at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard (HHSN268201500014C).  WGS for “NHLBI TOPMed: The Jackson Heart Study” (phs000964.v1.p1) was performed at the University of Washington Northwest Genomics Center (HHSN268201100037C). Centralized read mapping and genotype calling, along with variant quality metrics and filtering were provided by the TOPMed Informatics Research Center (3R01HL-117626-02S1; contract HHSN268201800002I).  Phenotype harmonization, data management, sample-identity QC, and general study coordination were provided by the TOPMed Data Coordinating Center (3R01HL-120393-02S1; contract HHSN268201800001I). We gratefully acknowledge the studies and participants who provided biological samples and data for TOPMed. <insert study-specific acknowledgments, which sometimes depend on what phenotypic and/or molecular data were used>
