Human SNPs in genes
Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix
|Learn to use SeattleSNPs with this free tutorial, sponsored by SeattleSNPs. SeattleSNPs identifies, genotypes, and models the associations between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in candidate genes and pathways that underlie inflammatory responses in humans. Users can visualize these high-density SNPs and access the underlying data in many forms--both text and graphical representations. This is an invaluable tool for any researcher working with single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).|
- about the process SeattleSNPs uses to generate high-quality genotyping data
- how to find genes of interest to your research
- to examine the detailed data available from SeattleSNPs
- about educational opportunities provided by the SeattleSNPs team

More about the resource:
SeattleSNPs was one of the earliest large-scale genotyping projects that examined variations in the human genome. Megabases and megabases of DNA from many individuals have been extensively studied, and informative variations have been discovered. SeattleSNPs is a member of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) special Program for Genomic Applications.
