dbGaP (database of Genotype and Phenotype)

NLM and the National Center for Biotechnology Information announce the introduction of the Database of Genotype and Phenotype (dbGaP), a new database designed to archive and distribute data from genome wide association (GWA) studies. GWA studies explore the association between specific genes (genotype information) and observable traits, such as blood pressure and weight, or the presence or absence of a disease or condition (phenotype information). See the press release for more information.
