openfree Variome.net: difference among individuals & populations in one species.
|The variome.net is an openfree web resource and encyclopedia of world wide SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism), SV, Indels, CNV, and other variants. Variome.net aims to support the international genome variance researches by collecting, organizing, analyzing, and disseminating variome information.|
Are humans a single species?: Yes, but with many diverse sub puplations from ancient and modern propagations.
Current Research (Please list your projects here)
Comparative study of the linkage disequilibrium of an ENCODE region, chromosome 7p15, in Korean, Japanese, and Han Chinese samples.
