Access results

According to the FinnGen consortium agreement, FinnGen results are subjected to one year embargo and, after that, can be made available to the larger scientific community. Data releases are done twice a year. The results can be browsed with the web browser and summary statistics data can be downloaded from Google cloud storage free of charge. The latest release is from June 2020. Please follow the instructions below to access it.

Newest data release:

Total sample size: ​135,638

Total number of variants analyzed: 16,962,023 variants

Number of disease endpoints (phenotypes) available: ​1,801 endpoints

New feature: LD estimation from SISu v3 reference panel

Please note that the allele frequency column provides the human reference genome alternative allele (not minor allele) frequency. All effect sizes and allele frequencies are reported in terms of alternate allele.

Browsing the results: 


The web browser contains all FinnGen GWAS results from release 3 and provides you with three options:

  1. Search for the GWAS result of a variant, phenotype or gene.

  2. Explore the loss-of-function burden (LoF) for gene-phenotypes combinations.

  3. Find a particular phenotype/endpoint.
