Many general and locus specific mutation disease databases have been established. It is also well known that different ethnic backgrounds may have different disease-causing mutation(s) and variation(s). Therefore, population specific databases are beneficial not only for future surveys, but also for those conducting studies in the etiology of genetic disorders and distribution of the mutations.
Offers genome structural information pertaining to Asian populations in a familiar graphical comparative view. PanSNPdb offers pre-computed information of linkage disequilibrium (LD) blocks and their haplotypes on each chromosome. The comprehensive information in this database can be considered as worldwide data collection, but with special emphasis on Asian populations. The Haploview tool is also integrated into the PanSNPdb website: users can adjust the haplotype inferencing parameters in order to recalculate haplotype blocks ‘‘on-the-fly’’.
Provides access to the annotations and summary statistics of The Taiwan Biobank (TWB). Taiwan View is a database that contains chromosome, position, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) ID, reference allele, alternative allele, counts of three genotypes, and call rate. It also provides an online query webpage for SNP information and an online genome-wide association study (GWAS) platform that allows users to upload their genotype data and perform GWASs using the Cochran–Armitage trend test.
Deals with human mutations detected throughout the turkish population. Turkish Human Mutation Database is a downloadable repository which compiles both clinical and experimental information with the aim of providing a standardized resource to study mutation at a national scale.
Supports real-time high-performance searches using a web search engine and a genome browser. VCGDB is a dynamic genome database of the Chinese population based on whole-genome sequencing (WGS) of 194 individuals. This resource offers a strategy for processing large amounts of genomic data and is a robust database for genomics and disease-related studies in the Chinese population.
A comprehensive database established to offer a web-based access to founder mutation data in Mediterranean population. The database provides an overview about the spectrum of founder mutations found in Mediterranean population to the scientific community. Furthermore, MFMD will help scientists to design more efficient diagnostic tests and provides beneficial information to understand the history and the migration events of the Mediterranean population.
A reference database of genetic variations in the Japanese population. We collected exomic sequencing data of 1208 Japanese individuals from five institutes and a data set of common variants determined by Illumina’s BeadArray technology from 3248 individuals of Japanese cohorts. Although several sequencing projects are going on for the East Asian population including Japanese for East Asian-specific genetic diversity information, our data sets currently provide the largest catalog of genetic diversity on the protein coding regions in the Japanese population. We centralized these data sets into a newly developed public database—human genetic variation database (HGVD). HGDV will serve as a useful resource sharing system, which will be required for research in genetic profiling in the future as well as for the development of genetic tests to screen for clinically relevant variants in personal genomes.
Consists of a collection of population life tables for a multitude of countries covering several years. HLD is an online database that provides information about the evolution of human mortality by providing a quantitative life-table description of mortality patterns. It also supplies information on calculation techniques as well as on ways of publishing mortality data used in different countries in different times.
