Sample Description: This sample consists of Japanese from Miyagi prefecture. This sample is part of Super Science High School (SSH) consortium which composed of 48 SSHs that are located in various prefectures of Japan. The SSHs are natural science oriented high schools that are selected, approved and supported for 5 years by the ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT)of Japan and the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST). This study had been approved by the Ethical Issues on Human Genome and gene Analysis in Nagasaki University and also by the Health Sciences University of Hokkaido. Written informed consent was obtained.
