Allele Frequency Database If you are interested in exploring or capitalizing on human genetic diversity then you should know about ALFRED — the Allele Frequency Database. It provides access to allele frequency data from a wide range of human population samples and links these data to the molecular genetics and human genome databases. Although it initially contained only data from the laboratories of Ken and Judy Kidd, it is now being systematically and continuously… 
Semantic Web-Based Integration of Cancer Pathways and Allele Frequency Data
The use of Semantic Web technology is demonstrated to integrate the ALFRED allele frequency database and the Starpath pathway resource to identify genetic variants which are associated with cancer pathways and whose frequency varies significantly between ethnic groups.
Analyses of a set of 128 ancestry informative single-nucleotide polymorphisms in a global set of 119 population samples
The simultaneous importance of the specific set of population samples and their relative sample sizes in the use of the structure program to determine which groups cluster together and consequently influence the ability of a marker panel to infer ancestry is demonstrated.
Pharmacogenetics: global clinical markers.
The ultimate goal of pharmacogenetics is to define robust markers that can be used in the clinical setting to aid in individualized treatment selection, but the true number of established pharmacogenetic markers ready for integration into clinical practice is remarkably small, and their usefulness may be geographically limited.
Significance of linkage disequilibrium heterogeneous patterns in the 21q22.3 region for mapping 21 trisomy individuals.
The 5 STRs at the 21q22.3 region in this Mexican population showed a non-homogeneous LD pattern, which demonstrates that recombination or linkage should not be assumed solely on the basis of genetic distance.
Development of a forensic identity SNP panel for Indonesia
SNPs in the Indonesian panel perform well in comparison to some other universal SNP and short tandem repeat panels as measured by Fisher's exact test for HWE and LE and Wright’s F statistics.
Serotonin transporter gene 5-HTTLPR VNTR allele frequency distribution in Africa and Eurasia
The S allele frequencies of serotonin transporter gene 5-HTTLPR, which is associated with a number of psychiatric disorders, were found for 21 populations of Eurasia and Africa and do not support the hypothesis on the culture-gene coevolution of the S allele frequency and the level of collectivism.
Admixture mapping analysis in the context of GWAS with GAW18 data
This study evaluated 3 different local ancestry inference methods, LAMP, Lamp-LD, and MULTIMIX, and applied admixture mapping analysis based on estimated local ancestry, and performed association tests with adjustment for local ancestry.
Molecular Evolution of Genetic Susceptibility to Hepatocellular Carcinoma
The genetic risk score for HCC was greatest in populations from Africa and decreased with subsequent migration into Europe and Asia, however, a major increase was noted with the most recent migrations into Oceania and the Americas.
Genetic Contribution to Alcohol Dependence: Investigation of a Heterogeneous German Sample of Individuals with Alcohol Dependence, Chronic Alcoholic Pancreatitis, and Alcohol-Related Cirrhosis
The present study investigated the genetic contribution to alcohol dependence (AD) using genome-wide association data from three German samples, finding no association with ADH1B was found in the combined ACP + ALC sample, demonstrating the importance of large samples in which the phenotype is well assessed.
SNP Identity Searching Across Ethnicities, Kinship, and Admixture
Models for the expected results are presented with comparison results on two in silico datasets spanning four ethnicities, extended kinship relationships, and also admixture between the fourethnicities.
