The International HapMap Project is a partnership of scientists and funding agencies from Canada, China, Japan, Nigeria, the United Kingdom and the United States to develop a public resource that will help researchers find genes associated with human disease and response to pharmaceuticals. See "About the International HapMap Project" for more information.

  • 2008-02-21: Incorrect position for merged SNPs in rel #23

    The position of ~24,500 SNPs was inadvertently entered incorrectly in HapMap release #23 bulk files (genotypes and frequencies). A complete list of affected SNPs can be found here. Errors are being corrected and new genotypes and frequency files will be made available shortly under HapMap release #23a.

  • 2008-02-06: HapMap inferred genotypes (rel#22)

    Genotypes were inferred for 73 CEPH children using the method of Burdick et al. (Nat Genet 38:1002-4) and based on the genotypes of 60 CEPH individuals in the same families. Data and list of CEPH samples are available here.

  • 2008-01-31: HapMap Public Release #23

    Genotypes and frequency data for this release are now available for bulk download. These datasets include SNPs in the Affymetrix 6.0 array, as well as SNPs excluded from release #22 which have now been merged into new rs# identifiers in dbSNP 126 (NCBI b36). Lists of merged SNPs may be found here. Please refer to the release notes for additional information.

  • 2007-12-20: Official release of HapMap Phased Haplotypes in NCBI b36 coordinates

    HapMap release #22 phased autosomes are now available for bulk download.

  • 2007-12-12: Genotype imputation using MACH1 software now available on HapMap Genome Browser

    Impute genotypes for all HapMap SNPs in a given region by providing a subset of genotypes on HapMap SNPs. Browse a region of interest, upload your own data (Impute Data plugin), and modify the visualization of user-provided and imputed SNPs. MACH1 imputation available for release #21 (NCBI build 35).

  • 2007-10-17: HapMap Phase II article published

    The publication "A second generation human haplotype map of over 3.1 million SNPs" by The International HapMap Consortium is now available for download in our Publications page.

  • 2007-06-04: Predicted OMIM associations available in GBrowse

    The OMIM associations track presents data from the MutaGeneSys database, which links genotype data from HapMap and whole genome association studies with the known disease variants reported by the OMIM database. Example of a region with multiple OMIM associations: Chr1:194923128..194933127

  • 2007-05-29: Newly phased haplotypes available for non-par segment of ChrX

    Genotyping data for phase I+II (rel #21) was rephased for the non-pseudoautosomal (non-par) region of chromosome X. Data is currently available for bulk download.
