Candidate AIMs: Allele frequencies from Akey et al. 2002

We have recently analyzed allele frequency data from the TSC on 26,000 SNPs. The first analysis of this data will be published in Genome Research in December 2002. Click on the link below to download the file with the allele frequencies and delta levels for the markers summarized in this work.
