Many general and locus specific mutation disease databases have been established (Ruangrit et al., 2008; Tan et al., 2006; Kleanthous et al., 2006; Teebi et al., 2002). 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.
