Summary Iranian Genome Data

Dear friends,

During the festive Norooz season, we here at the Iranian Genome Project have been celebrating by pouring over a deluge of data.  As our team continues to run its analyses, we wanted to make summary data available to the community.  We are currently working on putting the de-identified genetic data on a secure server, which will be available to scientists.

File for download: Iranian Genome File

This file contains the allele frequencies and counts at over 6 million different sites in the genome.  It can be used to explore your favorite area of the genome to see what we see in 77 Iranian individuals.

Example:

CHROM:POS rsid N_ALLELES N_CHR {ALLELE:FREQ} {ALLELE:COUNT}

1:704367 . 2 154 C:1 T:0 C:154 T:0

The first column is the chromosome:position, the second column is the rsid if it is available (“.” if it is not), the third column is the number of alleles, the fourth column is the number of total chromosomes, the fifth column has the allele frequencies (C = 100% and T = 0% in this case), and the sixth column represents allele counts.

We look forward to sharing more as the project moves forward!

The Iranian Genome Team
