With financial support from the National Institute of Health's (NIH) Director's Opportunity for Research awards using American Reinvestment and Recovery Act funds (RC2 AG036495-01, RC4 AG039029-01), the HRS has genotyped almost 20,000 respondents who provided DNA samples and signed consent forms in 2006-2012.
Several genetic data products derived from these samples are available. Some data are distributed through the NIH GWAS repository (dbGaP) and others are HRS data products. Detailed information can be found on each product's page.
