The SNPforID browser: an online tool for query and display of frequency data from the SNPforID project

Int J Legal Med. 2008 Sep;122(5):435-40. doi: 10.1007/s00414-008-0233-7. Epub 2008 May 20.


The SNPforID browser is a web-based tool for the query and visualization of the SNP allele frequency data generated by the SNPforID consortium ( ). From this project, validated panels of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) for a variety of forensic applications have been generated with the browser concentrating on the single-tube identification SNP set comprising 52 markers. A web interface allows the visitor to review the allele frequencies of the studied markers from all the available populations used by SNPforID to validate global SNP variability. The interface has been designed to offer the useful facility of combining populations into appropriate geographic groups for visual comparison of populations individually or amongst user-defined groupings and with equivalent HapMap data.
