The International HapMap Project said that its data release #9 is now available on the project web site, http://www.hapmap.org. The release comprises 639,110 genotype sets from the 90 CEPH-panel samples, totalling 57,519,900 genotypes. Absolute number of genotyped SNPs is “slightly less, as a fraction of the SNPs have been genotyped more than once by HapMap genotyping centers,” the organization said. The data are kept at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
