Study Description

Since it is recognized that currently available chips may not be ideally suited to studying African populations, the H3Africa Genome Analysis working group undertook the task of designing a cost-effective GWAS chip with content appropriate for use in genomics research studies of individuals from the African continent. To address gaps in sequence data for some of the African populations being studied in H3Africa projects, a high coverage whole genome sequence dataset was generated at the Baylor College of Medicine with samples provided by H3Africa PIs and collaborators, funded by the National Institutes of Health. This dataset includes 350 high coverage and 160 medium coverage whole genome sequences from 348 populations. The data is accompanied by minimal metadata, including country, ethnic group and sex. This dataset was used in the design of the new genotyping chip for better coverage of variants in African populations.
