This track shows the 657,000 SNPs genotyped in 53 populations worldwide by the
Genome Diversity Project in collaboration with the
du Polymorphisme Humain (HGDP-CEPH).
This track and several others are available from the
HGDP Selection Browser.
Samples collected by the HGDP-CEPH from 1,043 individuals from around the
world were genotyped for 657,000 SNPs at
Ancestral states for all SNPs were estimated using whole genome
human-chimpanzee alignments from the UCSC database.
For each SNP in the human genome (NCBI Build 35, UCSC database hg17), the
allele at the corresponding position in the chimp genome (Build 2 version 1,
UCSC database pantro2) was used as ancestral.
Allele frequencies were plotted on a world map using programs included in the
Generic Mapping Tools.
Thanks to the HGDP-CEPH, the Pritchard lab at Stanford University, Joe
Pickrell and John Novembre for sharing the data and plotting scripts
for this track.
