Analyses of frequency profiles of markers on disease or drug-response related genes in diverse populations are important for the dissection of common diseases. We report the results of analyses of data on 405 SNPs from 75 such genes and a 5.2 Mb chromosome, 22 genomic region in 1871 individuals from diverse 55 endogamous Indian populations. These include 32 large (> 10 million individuals) and 23 isolated populations, representing a large fraction of the people of India. We observe high levels… 
Genetic variation and haplotype structures of innate immunity genes in eastern India.
Interethnic comparisons of important pharmacology genes using SNP databases: potential application to drug regulatory assessments.
TLDR
An analysis of population differences in a set of 42 important pharmacogenomics genes by utilizing allele frequencies of SNPs shared among three ethnic groups in the recently completed Singapore Genome Variation Project and four populations in the International HapMap project is presented.
The Indian genetic landscape and disease-related genes
  • E. Heyer
  • Biology
    Journal of Biosciences
  • 2008
TLDR
The authors’ broad conclusion is the genetic diversity of India correlates mainly with ethnicity and language, which is followed by a discussion of what the findings might imply for the world-wide quest to uncover links between genetics and epidemiology.
Genetic diversity in India and the inference of Eurasian population expansion
TLDR
The results show that Indian populations harbor large amounts of genetic variation that have not been surveyed adequately by public SNP discovery efforts, and support a delayed expansion hypothesis in which an ancestral Eurasian founding population remained isolated long after the out-of-Africa diaspora, before expanding throughout Eurasia.
LIG1 polymorphisms: the Indian scenario
TLDR
Results showed polymorphisms in LIG1 affect its expression and may therefore change its function, and suggest that any epidemiological study undertaken on the global population should take this distinctiveness in consideration and avoid making generalized conclusions.
GENOMIC 'UNITY IN DIVERSITY' OF INDIA AND ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR GENOMIC MEDICINE
TLDR
The Indian Genome Variation Consortium has acquired genetic information from hundreds of loci in more than 2000 individuals representing 55 populations of India, revealing surprising similarities between populations that are contrasting to each other, geographically and culturally.
IGVBrowser–a genomic variation resource from diverse Indian populations
TLDR
Development of the IGVBrowser that provides allele and genotype frequency data generated in the IGVC project, which provides a basal level variation data in Indian population to study genetic diseases and pharmacology is reported here.
Genetic variations in the Dravidian population of South West coast of India: Implications in designing case-control studies
TLDR
This study indicated a low level of genetic differentiation among Dravidian language-speaking people of south India, which may not require stratification based on language and caste in case-control studies for autoimmune disorders in this population.
Population and genomic lessons from genetic analysis of two Indian populations
TLDR
It is shown that there is limited genetic marker portability from available genetic resources such as HapMap or the 1,000 Genomes Project to Indian populations, which also present an excess of private rare variants, and tagSNPs show a high level of portability between the two Indian population, in contrast to the common belief that North and South Indian populations are genetically very different.
Genomics of rare genetic diseases—experiences from India
TLDR
It is discussed how a collaborative research initiative such as GUaRDIAN can provide a nation-wide framework to cater to the rare disease community of India and how genome-based solutions can enable accelerated diagnosis and management of rare diseases.

The Indian Genome Variation database (IGVdb): a project overview
TLDR
The structure of the IGV project is revealed highlighting its various aspects like genesis, objectives, strategies for selection of genes, identification of the Indian subpopulations, collection of samples and discovery and validation of genetic markers, data analysis and monitoring as well as the project’s data release policy.
Low Levels of Genetic Divergence across Geographically and Linguistically Diverse Populations from India
TLDR
The results suggest that the frequencies of many genetic variants are distinctive in India compared to other parts of the world and that the effects of population heterogeneity on the production of false positives in association studies may be smaller in Indians than might be expected for such a geographically and linguistically diverse subset of the human population.
Positional Cloning of Disease Genes: Advantages of Genetic Isolates
TLDR
It is shown that based on the linkage disequilibrium and the ancient haplotype, the critical DNA region can be defined from the original 1- to 2-cM resolution obtained in linkage analysis to 50–200 kb, greatly facilitating the targeting of physical cloning and sequencing efforts.
Interrogating a high-density SNP map for signatures of natural selection.
TLDR
An analysis of single nucleotide polymorphisms with allele frequencies that were determined in three populations provides a first generation natural selection map of the human genome and provides compelling evidence that selection has shaped extant patterns of human genomic variation.
Genetic variation among world populations: inferences from 100 Alu insertion polymorphisms.
TLDR
Resampling analyses show that approximately 50 Alu polymorphisms are sufficient to obtain accurate and reliable genetic distance estimates, and demonstrate that markers with higher F(ST) values have greater resolving power and produce more consistent genetic distances estimates.
Genetic structure of Indian populations based on fifteen autosomal microsatellite loci
TLDR
The analyses based on autosomal microsatellite markers detected no evidence of general clustering of population groups based on ethnic, linguistic, geographic or socio-cultural affiliations and the existence of substructuring in populations from northeastern and southern India has notable implications for population genetic studies and forensic databases.
Patterns of human genetic diversity: implications for human evolutionary history and disease.
TLDR
Comparative studies across ethnically diverse human populations and across human and nonhuman primate species is important for reconstructing human evolutionary history and for understanding the genetic basis of human disease.
Population choice in mapping genes for complex diseases
TLDR
It is argued that the choice of study population is a critical factor when designing a study, and that genetically simplified isolates are more useful than diverse continental populations under most assumptions.
Ethnic India: a genomic view, with special reference to peopling and structure.
We report a comprehensive statistical analysis of data on 58 DNA markers (mitochondrial [mt], Y-chromosomal, and autosomal) and sequence data of the mtHVS1 from a large number of ethnically diverse
Linkage Disequilibrium: Ancient History Drives the New Genetics
TLDR
The importance of using appropriate statistical procedures, such as the false discovery rate, to maximize the chances of success in large scale association studies is highlighted.
