Bivariate plots of the effect sizes in Asian cohorts and European ancestry cohorts.

<p>The effect sizes reported in the European ancestry were plotted against the ones discovered in our studies. The Y-axis corresponds to the European effect size, while the X-axis corresponds to the effect in Chinese (A), Indians (B), Malays (C) and Meta-analysis (D). The SNPs which are replicated in our studies at the P-value of 0.05 level were designated by red dots, while the SNPs failed to be replicated were designated by black dots. The SNPs with inconsistent effect directions between European and each population were labeled by the reported gene names.</p>
