We developed a resource-efficient tool (called fastGWA) for mixed model association analysis, and applied it to 2,173 traits on 456,422 array-genotyped as well as 49,960 whole-exome-sequenced individuals of European ancestry in the UK Biobank (UKB). Full summary statistics of all traits can be downloaded using the Linux commands in http://cnsgenomics.com/software/gcta/#DataResource.
