  • Release of locations and allele frequencies of all SNVs in whole genome sequences of 2,049 Japanese individuals
  • Release of locations and allele frequencies of all SNVs in whole genome sequences of 2,049 Japanese individuals

    Research: 2016/06/21


    Tohoku University Tohoku Medical Megabank Organization (ToMMo) has performed sequencing for genomes of participants in the cohort studies of Tohoku Medical Megabank Project. We have finished a whole genome sequencing of 2,049 participants and we have now constructed the highly accurate Japanese population reference panel. We open a data set of the SNVs in the panel to the researchers.

    Outline of our newly opened data
    Data set

    The positions, allele frequencies and allele counts of all SNVs in the Whole Genome Reference Panel of Tohoku Medical Megabank Project.

    Means of access

    Through iJGVD (integrative Japanese Genome Variation Database)
    Click ā€œDownload (2KJPN)ā€

    Terms of use

    Users can immediately download the data upon agreement to follow our user guidelines which include: 1) allowed to use only for non-profit (academic) purposes; 2) prohibition of identification of the cohort participants; 3) prohibition of contact with the cohort participants; etc.

     

    We have already opened the data set for 1,070 Japanese individuals (1KJPN) in December 2015 and it is downloaded all over the world. 2KJPN includes around 28 million SNVs, around 7 million more than 1KJPN.
