websites
This website was initiated to address the impact of specific specimen handling variables on molecular testing of human tissues. The BRN database can be surveyed by biospecimen type or by experimental factor.
This website presents a list of publications in which studies assayed at least 100,000 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the initial stage. Publications can be searched by journal, first author, disease/trait or multiple diseases, chromosomal refion, gene, SNP, or p-value.
This website lists studies investigating the interaction of genotype and phenotype. Open access data includes a study description, phenotypic variables of interest, study documents (questionnaire, standard operating procedures, consent forms, etc), and genotype-phenotype analyses.
This website aims to unify human- and model-organism genetic variation databases towards increasingly holistic views into Genotype-To-Phenotype (G2P) data, and to link this system into other biomedical knowledge sources via genome browser functionality.
This website aims to solve the author/contributor name ambiguity problem in scholarly communications by creating a central registry of unique identifiers for individual researchers and an open and transparent linking mechanism between ORCID and other current author ID schemes.
The EQUATOR Network is an international initiative that seeks to improve reliability and value of medical research literature by promoting transparent and accurate reporting of research studies.
Using the same outline as the STROBE statement, STREGA introduces concepts that are of particular interest in genetic association studies such as genotyping error, population stratification, modelling haplotype variation, Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, and replication.
This website displays an archive of the results of genetic association studies of complex human diseases and disorders.
