MURDOCK Data Assets include 430,000 biological samples [serum, plasma, whole blood (DNA), paxgene (RNA) and urine] from 12,526 study participants in the MURDOCK Study Community Registry and Biorepository. The Community Registry includes self-reported data from baseline and annual follow-up questionnaires. Baseline characterization of the cohort included participant identification, contact information, primary physician; date and place of birth; demographics; self-reported health history encompassing 34 disease domains and related procedures; medications and supplements, dietary and physical activity; sleep, tobacco and alcohol use and selected PROMIS participant-reported outcomes domains, socioeconomic data, vital signs (height, weight, and waist circumference). Each participant is geo-spatially mapped at their home street address level to enable attribution of publicaly available social, economic, and natural and built environmental features to the individual using geospatial information systems (ACS and US Census). Participants were also consented for ongoing access to their electronic health records.
