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.

  • 2009-01-07: HapMap Phase 3 draft 2 release available for download

    Genotypes and frequency data for phase 3 (NCBI build 36, dbSNP b126) of the HapMap are available for bulk download. This dataset will subsequently be merged with phase I+II data, and once merged, the complete dataset will be made available in the HapMap genome browser and HapMart utility. Here are some notes and SNP counts for this dataset.

  • 2008-11-26: HapMap Public Release #26 (merged II+III)

    Genotypes and frequency data for phases I+II and III of the project is available in NCBI build 36 (dbSNP b126) coordinates. Data is now available for downloading and also available for browsing. Click here to read the latest release notes.

  • 2008-11-26: HapMap Public Release #24 on genome browser

    Data for phases I+II of the project is now available for browsing in NCBI build 36 (dbSNP b126) coordinates.

  • 2008-10-12: HapMap Public Release #24 (phase II) available for download

    Genotypes and frequency data for phases 1 and 2 of the project are available in NCBI build 36 (dbSNP b126) coordinates. Numerous allele flips have been corrected and chrX SNPs inadvertently dropped, have been added back into this release. Data is currently available for bulk download.

  • 2008-10-03: Visualization of GWA hits

    Genomewide association hits may now be visualized in the context of a karyogram. The current display includes traits with at least one replication and p-values < 1 x 10-15 in the NHGRI Catalog of GWA Studies. Users may upload their own GWA results for graphic visualization.

  • 2008-09-24: LD data for HapMap phase3 available for download

    Linkage Disequilibrium data for autosomes genotyped in HapMap phase 3 (NCBI build 36, dbSNP b126) is now available for download.

  • 2008-09-17: HapMap Phase 3 data available on genome browser

    Genotypes and frequency data for HapMap phase 3 (NCBI build 36, dbSNP b126) are now available for browsing. This dataset does not include genotype data from phase 1 and 2.

  • 2008-09-17: HapMap Phase 3 Tutorial
    58th ASHG Annual Meeting, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

    Tuesday, 11th November 2008, 5.00-6.30 PM
    Philadelphia Convention Center, Room 105B

    The HapMap Data Coordination Center is pleased to present a 1.5-hour tutorial during the 58th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics. The tutorial will provide an overview of the project, a comprehensive tour and live demo of the HapMap website featuring HapMap Phase 3 Data, and Q&A session. Seating is limited to 30 participants.
