Haploview: analysis and visualization of LD and haplotype maps

Bioinformatics. 2005 Jan 15;21(2):263-5. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/bth457. Epub 2004 Aug 5.


Research over the last few years has revealed significant haplotype structure in the human genome. The characterization of these patterns, particularly in the context of medical genetic association studies, is becoming a routine research activity. Haploview is a software package that provides computation of linkage disequilibrium statistics and population haplotype patterns from primary genotype data in a visually appealing and interactive interface.
