Fst Portal

Health disparities will usually be multifactorial, arising from the actions and interactions of socio-demographic factors, differential exposures, and genetic factors that may have different frequencies in populations with different historical geographic ancestry. We have created a database that allows the scientific community to more easily identify DNA variants with high population differentiation in allele frequencies or in gene expression in different human populations. FstDB is a database summarizing Fst values for each single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the 1000 Genomes Project database (calculated using the Hudson algorithm for Fst for all pairs of populations from the 1000 Genomes Project).
