Partial Release of Data from Whole Genome Reference Panel

Tohoku University Tohoku Medical Megabank Organization (ToMMo) is conducting large-scale cohort studies, along with creating a completed Whole Genome Reference Panel following its completion of whole genome sequencing for 1,000 people in late November 2013. We hereby announce that based on the progress made in our data analysis, ToMMo has decided to publicly make available the data from its whole genome sequencing for 1,000 people, namely, data on single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) frequencies with allele frequencies of 5% or greater. Our platform will offer capabilities to perform SNP searches from the reference SNP ID number and Gene Symbol and to identify location information on the international human genome reference sequence.
