General information of database
|Definitive Haplotype Database|
|Human Genes and Diseases - General polymorphism databases|
This database presents true haplotypes and LD structures of Japanese genome, determined using DNA samples obtained from complete hydatidiform moles.
The genome of complete hydatidiform mole is derived from a single sperm. Therefore, the haplotypes described in DHaploDB are true haplotypes. This is in contrast to the haplotypes of Asians described by the HapMap Project, which are haplotypes deduced from genotypes of diploid materials using computational method that yields haplotypes with error at a certain level.
This work was supported by "Research Revolution 2002" (RR2002) initiative and a Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Priority Areas “Applied Genomics" from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan.
