Identifying opportunities to harmonize data and enable GxE

Detecting GxE interactions often requires amassing large sample sizes, but identifying cohorts with similar phenotype and environmental exposure data is often cumbersome. dbGaP provides some opportunity for identifying such cohorts, but the complete set of phenotype and environmental variables as well as availability of multi-omics data are often not included. STAGE could provide a venue for aligning cohorts with harmonizable data and enabling opportunities for large, well-powered GxE studies.
