Hi Jenn,
Thanks so much for the info.
Do folks register their hypotheses somehow in the dbGaP (transparency and 
reliability measures percolating throughout the research 
community...particularly genetics).

Hi Jenifer,

I would use the search string: MH091657 OR "Human Connectome Project" to search 
PubMed for manuscripts that have correctly cited the WU-Minn-Oxford HCP grant 
(over 500 to date!).

I am not aware of papers that fit your criteria, but Tom Nichols (CC'd) would 
know what's out there (and likely what's in the pipeline) from some of the

Just curious...is there an easy way to identify manuscripts already published 
using the HCP-YA genetics data? I found it tough to search in PubMed (HCP is a 
common acronym), and the HCP website might be incomplete? Specifically, have 
any papers come out yet which went beyond heritability analyses and used a 
structural genetics approach (maybe relating to brain structure/connectivity)?
Many Thanks for any pointers you can provide.

News from the Human Connectome Project (HCP)
March 2, 2018
The Human Connectome Project (HCP) WU-Minn consortium is pleased to announce 
the release of all SNP Genotypes collected for HCP-Young Adult (HCP-YA) 
subjects on dbGaP:

Mapping the Human Connectome - Structure, Function, and Heritability: Healthy 
Young Adults (Age 22-35 Years) Including Twins and their Non-Twin Siblings
dbGaP Study Accession: phs001364.v1.p1
The dbGaP data comprises array and imputed genotyping and a limited number of 
phenotypic variables (self reported sex, age, twin status, and family IDs) 
collected for 1142 of our 1206 released HCP-YA participants, including 149 
pairs of genetically-confirmed monozygotic twins (298 participants) and 94 
pairs of genetically-confirmed dizygotic twins (188 participants). Other open 
and restricted access subject variables are available in 
dbGaP download of the HCP-YA data requires authorized access through a data 
access request initiated after logging into dbGaP with an eRA 
 PI account. General instructions for submitting a successful data access 
 for dbGaP are linked from the blue box on the study page.
You will need to submit as part of the request:
*         A research statement and a nontechnical summary statement describing 
your planned use of the data.
*         The name of the institutional signing official who will certify the 
terms of use assurances on behalf of your institution.
*         A list of all internal investigators at your institution who will 
share access to the data for the proposed research.
*         A list of external collaborating investigators.
*         The name of the information technology (IT) Director for your 
*         Local Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval for use.
Once you are logged in and click Create/Begin a New Research Project, on the 
Choose Datasets tab of the Project Request page, under Primary Disease select 
"Connectome" to find the HCP dataset. Then proceed with your application.
