Just like the title says. I am reading about a GWAS but I don't know much about them. I understood most of it but I couldn't figure out what the "n" value was.

    $\begingroup$ Are you talking about n (as written in the title) or N (as written in the title)? The meaning of a variable like this might well vary depending on your source. Can you please indicate your source? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Same question as @Remi.b. The most common use of $n$ is to denote the total number of subjects used in the study. $N$ is also often used to denote the number of alleles. $\endgroup$ May 10 '19 at 11:57
