AbstractThe National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health) recently released both genotyped data and polygenic scores for approximately 10,000 participants. These new data products provide researchers with the ability to conduct biosocial analyses by combining the depth and breadth of phenotypic information contained in Add Health with genetically informed measures. This session will describe the Add Health genetic data and polygenic scores, as well as a few examples of uses of the data from recent publications. We will (1) introduce the genetic data and polygenic scores, (2) describe data access steps, and (3) highlight a few applications of the data in recent research.
