Whole genome sequencing of six ethnic groups from Burkina Faso, Cameroon, and Tanzania

Released on 15 Aug 2019.

Human

This release contains six packages of Illumina whole-genome sequence data and Illumina Omni 2.5M genotype data for individuals from three African countries. Individuals were collected as nominally unrelated (Burkina Faso) or as family trios (Cameroon and Tanzania).

This data was also used to analyse a specific genomic region in Leffler et al. (2017), “Resistance to malaria through structural variation of red blood cell invasion receptors”, Science, 356.
