We replicated known genetic associations for five diseases. We genotyped the first 10,000 samples accrued into BioVU (the Vanderbilt EMR-associated DNA biobank) for twenty-one loci were associated with five common diseases (reported odds ratios 1.14-2.36) in at least two previous studies. We developed automated phenotype identification algorithms that used NLP techniques (to identify key findings, medication names, and family history), billing code queries, and structured data elements (such as laboratory results) to identify cases (n=70-698) and controls (n=808-3818).
