Learn to use dbGaP, the NCBI database of Genotypes and Phenotypes that serves as a repository for the results of studies investigating the interaction between genotypes and phenotypes. The dbGaP resource includes detailed reports of variables, documents, analyses, and data sets from genome wide association studies and other large-scale studies that use high throughput genotyping and sequencing methods. Learn about the two levels of access to dbGaP, open and controlled, and how to search and retrieve open access data. The dbGaP resource compiles studies using stable identifiers and standard formats that allow these data to be browsed, downloaded, and used to facilitate additional studies and replication of results.

Friday SNPpets: This week's SNPpets consist of an abbreviated week, because I'm on the road for a conference. But there's plenty of interesting stuff already this week, and #BoG16 is just getting going. As usual, new ...
Friday SNPpets: This week's SNPpets include a lot of back-and-forth on the artist formerly known as personal genomics (now personalized medicine). We got the EU mucking up access, we have privacy issues unearthed, we ...
Video Tip of the Week: PhenDisco, "phenotype discoverer" for dbGap data : The dbGaP, database of Genotypes and Phenotypes, repository at NCBI collects information from research projects that link genotype and phenotype information and human variation, across many different t...
Video Tip of the Week: PheGenI, Phenotype-Genotype Integrator: The hunt for variations in genes and genomes has been both fruitful and frustrating. We can see genome variations in a variety of ways, but we can't always connect them with a phenotype easily. And vic...
