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’’.
