MapSeq was a web application developed by Jacob Almagro-Garcia and Olivo Miotto to explore ways of interacting with and visualising genotype data from Plasmodium parasites. MapSeq was described in an article in Wired in 2010.
MapSeq was an experimental prototype and has now been decommissioned. However, the spirit of MapSeq lives on in two new web applications currently available through the MalariaGEN website:
- Catalog of genetic variations (SNPs) and allele frequencies, release 1.0 - search and query a catalog of SNPs found in P. falciparum field isolates and compare their allele frequencies between populations from different regions of the world
- My Genotypes - browse genotype calls for individual parasite samples you have contributed to the community project (MalariaGEN partners only)
If you have any question about MapSeq or these other web applications, please feel free to contact us.
