When I could not replicate results from original data of a recent study I thought this to be my private problem. It seems, however, that I am not alone here when reading another reanalysis attempt:
We reproduced two analyses in principle and six partially or with some discrepancies; ten could not be reproduced.
Only recently, I found another example in the literature:
Further investigation showed that this SNP had been excluded from the WTCCC analysis owing to poor genotype clustering, even though it passed the stated WTCCC exclusion criteria and was not present in the original list of additional exclusions I was given.
which is in large contrast to everything I learned about the responsibility of authors, yea, yea.
