Welcome to the Social Science Genetic Association Consortium (SSGAC).
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 tries to promote the collection of harmonized and well-measured phenotypes.

The SSGAC is currently conducting:
Within-family GWAS of multiple phenotypes
Ongoing updates of the Polygenic Index Repository
Developing methods for multi-ancestry genetic analysis
Please contact us if you are interested in joining these initiatives.
