Table S1. Details on the number of individuals genotyped by each of the three platforms. Number of callings available at GSTM1 are also provided. Table S2.GSTM1 CNV assessment conducted by each of the genotyping platforms. We applied the PennCNV algorithm to call the CNVs from the Illumina 1M array genotyping data. Figure S1. Venn diagrams describing the common individuals genotyped by the three platforms a) for the cases and controls, b) for cases only and c) for controls only.
