When trying to pool all the SNPs identified as being associated with a disease from different GWAS studies. How do you determine which are actually of interest? Are there any other things (than the below) to look out for when determining whether or not SNPs found significantly associated to a disease by GWAS are definitely of interest?
1). Validated in other cohorts
2). Methodologically superior
3). Sample size
4). Found in different populations
5). How significant they were found in the study (ORs & was multiple correction applied)
