THE CEPH GENOTYPE DATABASE V9.0 AVAILABLE ON WEB AND FTP SERVERS.

The most recent version of The CEPH genotype database (V9.0)
is now available to the scientific international community.
The database holds over 2,966,800 CEPH family genotypes
generated during the last 13 years for some 14,404 polymorphic
markers, including more than 9,900 microsatellite markers
( 56% of which are hightly polymorphic). The mean heterozygote
frequency of the loci in V9.0 is 0.70, and the mean number
of alleles per locus is 5.8, essentially reflecting the large
number of microsatellites in the database.

Included in V9.0 is a collection of genotypes for 1,494 confirmed
single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) located throughout the human
genome. These genotypes were generated on 14 CEPH reference families
to confirm polymorphism and segregation by the Whitehead Institute-MIT
Center for Human Genome Research in collaboration with Affymetrix Inc.
In V9.0, these SNP markers may be identified by the the probe field
prefix, WIAF.

In addition to the raw genotypes, the database provides users
with linkage file formats of markers and two-point lod scores
among all pairs of markers on the same chromosome (5,140,833 two-point
lodscores have been computed).

You can efficiently browse and dump the data from our Web/database
interface (http://www.cephb.fr/cephdb/).

Dump programs allow you to dump data for several markers on the same
chromosome in CEPH, LINKAGE and CRIMAP formats.
