THE CEPH GENOTYPE DATABASE V8.0 AVAILABLE ON WEB AND FTP SERVERS.
The most recent version of The CEPH genotype database (V8.0)
is now available to the scientific international community.
The database holds over 2,450,000 CEPH family genotypes
generated during the last 12 years for some 10,975 polymorphic
markers, including more than 7,950 microsatellite markers
( 61% of which are hightly polymorphic). The mean heterozygote
frequency of the loci in V8.0 is 0.62, and the mean number
of alleles per locus is 6.2, essentially reflecting the large
number of microsatellites in the database.
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 (3,010,048 two-point
lodscores have been computed).
You can efficiently retrieve and dump the data from our Web/database
