SNP-L is an electronic mailing list established at NIH for members of the biomedical research community interested in studying the relationship between single nucleotide polymorphisms and human disease. SNP-L grew out of my frustration with the fact that, although the 'complete' sequence of the human genome is now available, there are not enough tools for large epidemiologic studies of SNPs. Projects such as the SNP consortium and HapMap, coupled with work at The Broad Institute and Celera genomics have
identified large numbers of putative SNPs, however, these need to be verified and validated and their frequency in various populations determined. In addition, only by studying the frequency of SNPs in disease at-risk populations, will we come to know
their significance. The informatic tools for discovering these correlations are still in their formative stage.

So, there will be is a great deal to discuss on this list.

It is going to be an exciting time.

If you can't figure out how to work it, just write ma at:
