VaDE: a manually curated database of reproducible associations between various traits and human genomic polymorphisms.
Bottom Line: Genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have identified numerous single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with the development of common diseases.Then, we evaluated reproducibility of associations in each population by counting the number of significantly associated studies.We believe that our database will contribute to the future establishment of personalized medicine and increase our understanding of genetic factors underlying diseases.
