Catalogue of Genetic Variation in P. falciparum - v3.1

Project: P. falciparum Community Project

Released on 27 Feb 2014

An important output of the P. falciparum Community Project is the Catalogue of Genetic Variation in P. falciparum, which includes:

  • Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) identified via deep sequencing
  • Allele frequencies in different geographical populations
  • Measures of genome accessibility – such as %GC, mapping quality and coverage – to visualise potential difficulties in identifying SNPs and accurately genotyping samples

The data in the Catalogue of Genetic Variation in P. falciparum are periodically updated and made available open access.
