In my GWAS output I am getting groups of SNPs with exactly the same maf. My sample size is 5345. Is sample size causing this or is there another reason.

All the best Joan

Edit:

Thank you for getting back to me. I am doing a linear analysis in plink2 (covariates not included) on a sample of 5346 induviduals using a cognitive phenotype and the following command ./plink2 pfile XXX --glm cols=+a1 --pheno phenocog -- out XXX. My QC has a maf of .001 and an info score of 0.9

could you describe a little bit more your experiment design, the tools you used and put some of your results here ? Without that it will be difficult to help you.

By itself, this is nothing to worry about. If you have no missing genotypes, there are only 5335 possible minor allele frequencies, corresponding to the fractions 11/10690, 12/10690, 13/10690, ..., and 5345/10690. And the smallest fractions are a lot more frequent than the rest.
