Welcome to the Mouse HapMap Imputation Genotype Resource home. A high-density genotype resource of 121,433 SNPs over 94 inbred strains were collected to comprehensively understand the structure of genetic variation among laboratory mice. Combining with the 13,094 Wellcome Trust SNPs, a set of 132,285 SNPs was compiled, which we refer as to the mouse HapMap resource, which is available for download through http://www.mousehapmap.org
Using the mouse HapMap resource, it is possible to accurately impute the genotypes of the 94 strains at the 8 million SNPs discovered by the NIEHS/Perlegen mouse resequencing project. We imputed the genotypes at the NIEHS/Perlegen SNPs from the mouse HapMap SNPs and an additional set of 7,570 gap-filling SNPs provided by NIEHS/Perlegen. Since each NIEHS/Perlegen SNP probe has different quality, we classified roughly half of the SNPs as 'high-quality' SNPs, which do not have missing genotype at any of the 15 resequenced strains. The imputed genotypes are available for the high-quality SNPs, which has estimated error rate of 0.27% for high-confidence imputed genotypes. In addition, the imputed genotypes for all 8 million SNPs are also available for download. Their estimated error rate is 0.37% for high-confidence imputed genotypes. All the downloads are available through the menu bar on the left side.
