Catalogue of Genetic Variation in P. falciparum - v4.0

Project: P. falciparum Community Project

Released on 19 Aug 2015

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.

Catalogue of Genetic Variation in P. falciparum - v4.0

Download the latest version of the Catalogue of Genetic Variation in P. falciparum (v4.0) which includes 900,000 SNPs and allele frequency data based on an analysis of 3,488 P. falciparum samples collected in 43 locations in 23 countries.

These data can be downloaded from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute public ftp site.
