The tracks that are listed here contain data from unrelated individuals sequenced as part of various population-genetic and disease-specific studies collected by the Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD). Individuals affected by severe pediatric diseases and first-degree relatives were excluded from the studies. However, some individuals with severe disease may still have remained in the datasets, although probably at an equivalent or lower frequency than observed in the general population. Raw data from all studies have been reprocessed using a standardized pipeline and jointly variant-called process, which aims to increase consistency between projects. For more information on the processing pipeline and population annotations, see the following blog post gnomAD, gnomAD v2.1 and the 2.0.2 README.

The available data tracks are:

Display Conventions

These tracks are multi-view composite tracks that contain multiple data types (views). Each view within a track has separate display controls, as described here. Most gnomAD tracks contain multiple subtracks, corresponding to subsets of data. If a track contains many subtracks, only some subracks will be displayed by default. The user can select which subtracks are displayed via the display controls on the track details page.

Data Access

The raw data can be explored interactively with the Table Browser, or the Data Integrator. For automated analysis, the data may be queried from our REST API, and the genome annotations are stored in files that can be downloaded from our download server, subject to the conditions set forth by the gnomAD consortium (see below). Coverage values for the genome are in bigWig files in the coverage/ subdirectory. Variant VCFs can be found in the vcf/ subdirectory.

The data can also be found directly from the gnomAD downloads page. Please refer to our mailing list archives for questions, or our Data Access FAQ for more information.

More information about using and understanding the gnomAD data can be found in the gnomAD FAQ site.


Thanks to the Genome Aggregation Database Consortium for making these data available. The data are released under the ODC Open Database License (ODbL) as described here.
