ThaiSNP

ThaiSNP : Thailand SNP Discovery Project

Rationale
At the 4th HUGO Pacific Meeting & 5th Asia-Pacific Conference of Human Genetics in Pattaya, Thailand, from 27 to 30 October 2002, The Asian SNP consortium, which was set up after the last HUGO meeting, has agreed to initiate the SNP database for Asian populations or Asian SNP database. Each country including Japan, China, South Korea, India, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand, needs to set up its own SNP database

Aim
The aim of the project is to identify intragenic SNPs, which are frequent (allele frequency of more than 5%) in Thai populations. An SNP database will be completed of all genes identified in the whole human genome and their regulatory regions with allele frequency and LD block patterns in Thai and other (French, Japanese and African) populations.

This database will also contain other information including genomic sequences, genomic structure, primer sequences, functional genomics etc., and it will be used for the following:

Identification of disease associated genes for both the candidate gene approach and systematic genome screening.
Pharmacogenomics
The information obtained from this database will also be used for the Asian SNP consortium as a contribution from Thailand.
