Abstract:
Purpose: The purpose of this presentation is to describe the HapMap Project and its use in genetic association studies. Background: The completion of Phase 1 of the HAPMAP project in October of 2005 has lead to the identification of numerous haplotype tagging SNPs available for use in genetic association studies. Finding, navigating and implementing the information available through HAPMAP to identify haplotype tagging SNPs can be challenging however the usefulness of this database as well as its application to genomic studies warrants investigators familiarizing themselves with this resource. Methods (Sources, Analytic approach): This presentation will describe/illustrate how to 1) access, navigate, and understand the HAPMAP website and its symbols, 2) select measures of linkage disequilibrium for haplotype tagging SNPs, 3) select/identify haplotype tagging SNPs and their frequency among specific genes/racial groups 4) cross referencing haplotype tagging SNPs with OMIM, 5) the benefits/limitations of using haplotype tagging SNPs and HAPMAP. Results: Following this presentation the participants will be able to access/navigate and appropriately use the haplotype tagging SNP information available on the HAPMAP website for use in bench science and translational research. Conclusions and Implications: This presentation provides indispensable information regarding haplotype tagging SNPs essential for nurses and other investigators conducting bench science and translational research from bench to bedside.
