Allele Frequencies in World Populations

Does any of this interest you?




- Publish your population frequency data on HLA and KIR. (In collaboration with Human Immunology)


As you know www.allelefrequencies.net (AFND) has collected frequency data for many years from normal populations. We have now embarked with the journal HUMAN IMMUNOLOGY (HI) to collect individual genotype data from normal populations. The collection of this data will be the first step leading to a SHORT POPULATION REPORT in HI. The protocol and software tool has been developed on AFND for submission of this data. Once the dataset is submitted to AFND the investigator may then write a short publication for HI. The first announcement of this was made in HI 2015:76 393-94 and more details are available in a recent review of AFND (HI 2016:77 238-248) and in a second editorial in HI 2016:77 617.

- New search available for low resolution data


We have included a new search in AFND to allow individuals to look for data at lower resolution. This allows an individual (when data is not available at high resolution for a specific allele) to search frequencies at a lower resolution for this allele family. You can find this link under our main menu (HLA -> Search frequencies at lower resolution).
