GWAS Central Nomenclature System
We have devised a completely new GWAS Central Nomenclature System to ensure consistent and unambiguous presentation of alleles and genotypes. The system caters not only for simple sequence alleles and traditional presence/absence genotypes, but also copy-number variants and somatic variants, as well as quantitative and ratio classes of genotypes. It also offers a robust way to represent long alleles.
GWAS Central Object Model 1.0
GWAS Central data is organised into a series of relational database tables, a graphical overview of which is provided as a Data Model Diagram. The detailed structure of these tables is available in the form of a MySQL Relational Schema Definition.
