A database providing rapid access to human genotype data and analysis tools.
Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix
|Learn to use GVS (Genome Variation Server), a comprehensive database that provides quick access to all data found in both the dbSNP and HapMap databases and includes specialized data from other projects. The database includes a suite of analysis tools such as linkage disequilibrium plots, tag SNPs, merging populations, and more. In addition you can upload our own data and use the GVS analysis and visualization tools. If your research involves genetic variation and SNPs, learn how to use this valuable tool for your analysis needs.|
- to search for variation by keyword or by sequence
- to obtain haplotype, linkage disequilibrium and other types of variation data
- to download specific and targeted data

More about the resource:
Genome Variation Server (GVS) is a database hosted by the SeattleSNPs Program for Genomic Applications (PGA), which works to identify, genotype and model the associations between SNPs in candidate genes. GVS is funded as part of the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute's (NHLBI) Programs for Genomic Applications (PGA).
