The landscape of recombination in African Americans
This webpage provides additional material associated with "Hinch et al. The landscape of recombination in African Americans. Nature" available here.
The African American Map (AA map) is available for the autosomes and X chromosome in Build 36. Please click here to download.
MCMC samples of the genetic map, providing estimates of uncertainty
The AA map has been estimated using an MCMC algorithm with Gibbs sampling.
Thus, users who are interested in not only the best estimate of the genetic distance between two markers, but also the uncertainty of the
genetic distance between those markers, can use MCMC samples to study the uncertainty.
Maps in Build 37
Shop Mallick has kindly lifted over seven human genetic maps to build 37: African American map, deCODE, the population-averaged LD-based map, YRI and CEU LD-based maps, and the African-enriched and Shared genetic maps. Please click here to download.
