Study Description

We conducted low-coverage (~10x) sequencing of six ethnic groups from three malaria-endemic countries in sub-Saharan Africa, with the aim of characterising genetic diversity and improving imputation performance for genotyped samples in these populations. This data is part of a pre-publication release and is available under managed access. Please see https://www.malariagen.net/data/terms-use/human-gwas-data for more information on MalariaGEN data access policies. The purpose of the project was to support the discovery and understanding of genetic variants that influence human disease. Specifically defined goals were: a. the discovery of single nucleotide variants at frequencies of 1% or higher in diverse populations, b. even more comprehensive discovery (variants down to frequencies of 0.1 - 0.5%) in functional gene regions, and c. discovery of structural variants, such as copy number variants, other insertions and deletions, and inversions, including sequence-level understanding of breakpoints.
