The Structure of Haplotype Blocks in the Human Genome
Haplotype-based methods offer a powerful approach to disease gene mapping, based on the association between causal mutations and the ancestral haplotypes on which they arose. As part of The SNPExpand

A map of human genome variation from population-scale sequencing
The 1000 Genomes Project aims to provide a deep characterization of human genome sequence variation as a foundation for investigating the relationship between genotype and phenotype. Here we presentExpand

A second generation human haplotype map of over 3.1 million SNPs
We describe the Phase II HapMap, which characterizes over 3.1 million human single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) genotyped in 270 individuals from four geographically diverse populations andExpand

Detecting recent positive selection in the human genome from haplotype structure
The ability to detect recent natural selection in the human population would have profound implications for the study of human history and for medicine. Here, we introduce a framework for detectingExpand

A map of human genome sequence variation containing 1.42 million single nucleotide polymorphisms
We describe a map of 1.42 million single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) distributed throughout the human genome, providing an average density on available sequence of one SNP every 1.9 kilobases.Expand

Genome-Wide Association Analysis Identifies Loci for Type 2 Diabetes and Triglyceride Levels
New strategies for prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2D) require improved insight into disease etiology. We analyzed 386,731 common single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 1464 patientsExpand

Positive Natural Selection in the Human Lineage
Positive natural selection is the force that drives the increase in prevalence of advantageous traits, and it has played a central role in our development as a species. Until recently, the study ofExpand

Characterization of single-nucleotide polymorphisms in coding regions of human genes
A major goal in human genetics is to understand the role of common genetic variants in susceptibility to common diseases. This will require characterizing the nature of gene variation in humanExpand
