National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences Environmental Genome Project (EGP) SNPs

Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix

Learn to use NIEHS SNPs Environmental Genome Program at the University of Washington. NIEHS SNPs has systematically identified and genotyped single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in environmental response genes. This data has resulted in the characterization of many new variations that will greatly help research into disease genes that respond to environmental stimulus. The NIEHS SNPs site contains the data generated by this project with links to other resources to better research and understand the human variation in environment response genes. The NIEHS SNPs website contains data generated by this project, and links to other resources enabling better research and understanding of human variation in environmental response genes.

You'll learn:

  • about the NIEHS SNPs project
  • how to access NIEHS SNPs data from the NEIHS SNPs home
  • how to analyze the data using several databases and resources

More about the resource:

NIEHS SNPs, is a collaborative project housed at the University of Washington and supported by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. Related SNP data can also be found at SeattleSNPs and the Genome Variation Server (GVS). The stated long term goal of this project is to characterize how specific human genetic variations, or polymorphisms, contribute to environmentally induced disease susceptibility.
