Welcome to the

Social Science Genetic Association Consortium

The SSGAC is a cooperative enterprise among medical researchers and social scientists that coordinates genetic association studies for social science outcomes and provides a platform for interdisciplinary collaboration and cross-fertilization of ideas. The SSGAC also promotes the collection of harmonized and well-measured phenotypes.

The SSGAC is currently working on: 
  • Within-family GWAS of multiple phenotypes
  • Ongoing updates of the Polygenic Index Repository
  • Developing methods for multi-ancestry genetic analysis
  • Developing methods to estimate assortative mating
Please contact us if you're interested in joining these initiatives.
