  • 2006-10-09:New Features and Datasets Available
    The website of the International Haplotype Map Project has a number of new features and datasets which are being released today.

      New Features at hapmap.org:

    • When browsing data from release 21, there is now a new "region" view. This is intermediate between the detailed view, and the chromosomal overview. The region view displays 200kb, giving a broader overview of the chromosomal region, while greater details can still be seen concurrently in the detailed view.
    • There are new tracks in the browser which display expected LD values (r^2) within windows along the chromosome
    • Recombination rates and hotspots data are now available for release 21.
    • There is a new plugin which downloads phased genotypes for the region being browsed. Under the configuration options, one can chose the panel to download, as well as additional options for filtering the SNPs. To download, select "Download Phased Haplotype Data" under "Reports & Analysis".
    • New datasets:

    • The raw data (CEL files) from the Affymetrix GeneChip 500k Mapping Arrays on the HapMap samples are available for download.
    • Genotypes inferred using the method of Burdick et al. (Nat Genet 38:1002-4). Starting with the genotype of 60 CEPH individuals, the methodology infers the genotypes for 78 CEPH children in the same families.
  • 2006-07-20: HapMap Public Release #21
    Genotypes, frequencies and assays for phase I and phase II of the HapMap project are now available for bulk download. The files contain all phase I and II data combined.

    This release contains all processed data from the HapMap project, and includes all data from phases I+II of the project. This release also contains genotypes from the Affymetrix 500k genotyping array.

    In addition to expressing the genotypes relative to the dbSNP rs sequence, this release contains a set of files expressing genotypes relative to the forward strand of NCBI build 35. The genotypes are identical, and are complement for SNPs where the rs sequence maps to the reverse strand of the genome build.

    The phased genotypes are expressed relative to the forward strand of build 35, so the displayed alleles will read as a haplotype across a single strand along the chromosome.

  • 2006-01-24: HapMap Public Release #20
    The HapMap project is happy to make a new release of the dataset. This release contains a remapping of the previous release (#19) on NCBI Build 35 coordinates.

  • April 18-20, 2004: International HapMap Community Analysis Meeting

    This meeting will discuss data analysis and methodological issues relevant to the International Haplotype Map Project. This will include approaches to describing linkage disequilibrium, properties of linkage disequilibrium, inference of haplotypes and haplotype frequencies, and methods for utilizing the haplotype map in association and other disease studies. The meeting will provide an important opportunity for a diverse community of investigators (both those involved directly in the project, and those in the broader community) to come together to define and debate a range of issues in the creation of the Haplotype Map resource.

    The meeting is scheduled to begin with presentations and a reception from 6pm on April 18, and will conclude no later than 3pm on April 20. It is being hosted by the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine/Johns Hopkins University and the National Human Genome Research Institute. For further details, to register, and/or to submit an abstract visit International HapMap Community Analysis Meeting website.

    Investigators wishing to apply methods to the current data should use the March freeze of the HapMap data and of a denser data set, from the ENCODE project, available at www.hapmap.org/genotypes/ENCODE/.
