PLEASE NOTE: If there is any change to your study (including aims, sample size or assays) at any time after submission to the ASC for review, an
AS Modification Request form (NEW) needs to be submitted to ASC for approval. Please email form to ASC@whi.org.
AS Study site pages: Most funded AS have a
Study Page, which contains a brief description of the study, including specific aims. When AS data is eligible for release, it may be linked to the study site page along with data dictionaries, data preparation documentation, participant selection description and other study-related materials.
WHI AS may be required to, or choose to, submit their data to dbGaP (database of Genotypes and Phenotypes) a central data repository at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Submission is a condition of the funding agency in many cases. WHI has specific limitations on the data that can be submitted based upon WHI participant consent. Therefore, AS investigators submitting genetic data should work with the WHI-CCC and follow the steps outlined in the
dbGaP Guidelines or
Quick Information Sheet to ensure the data is submitted correctly. The actual submission is the PI's responsibility. Please contact the WHI-CCC at
firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or help using these guidelines.
