April 22 Webinar on NCBI’s ALFA: allele frequency data for variant analysis and interpretation

On Wednesday, April 22, 2020 at 12 PM,  join NCBI staff to learn how results from the Allele Frequency Aggregator (ALFA) project will help you interpret the biological impact of common and rare sequence variants. ALFA’s initial release includes analysis of genotype data from ~100K unrestricted dbGaP subjects and provides high-quality allele frequency data now displayed on relevant dbSNP records. In this webinar, you will learn about the data in the recent ALFA release, see how to access the data from the web, FTP, and how to programmatically retrieve data by positions, genes, and other attributes using E-utilities and Variation Services API in Python.

  • Date and time: Wed, Apr 22, 2020 12:00 PM – 12:45 PM EDT
  • Register

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information about attending the webinar. A few days after the live presentation, you can view the recording on the NCBI YouTube channel. You can learn about future webinars on the Webinars and Courses page.
