NEW YORK – Self-reported phenotypes in combination with more structured hospital diagnoses can boost the ability of biobank-based genome-wide association studies to uncover genetic associations, according to a new analysis.

Recent studies have begun using questionnaires or similar digital phenotyping approaches as a less expensive means of gathering phenotypic data. But researchers led by Stanford University's Manuel Rivas noted that it is unclear how well this approach lines up with more established phenotyping approaches.
