Data slicer tool (all species) - grch37.ensembl.org

This tool allows you to get a subset of data from a BAM or VCF file. Note this tool was initally developed for the 1000genomes browser (http://browser.1000genomes.org/index.html). It is still available on that platform but wiill be retired from there in due course.

Variation Pattern Finder tool (all species) - grch37.ensembl.org

This tool allows you to identify variation patterns in a chromosomal region of interest for different individuals. The tool was initially developed for the 1000genomes browser (http://browser.1000genomes.org/index.html). It is still available on that platform but wiill be retired from there in due course.

Release 85

Allele frequency calculator tool (all species) - grch37.ensembl.org

We have migrated the Allele Frequency Calculator tool from the 1000Genomes website to our grch37.ensembl.org site. This tool takes a VCF file and a matching sample panel file, and calculates allele frequencies for one or more 1000G populations for a defined chromosomal region.

VCF to PED convertor tool (all species) - grch37.ensembl.org

We have migrated the VCF to PED convertor tool from the 1000Genomes website to grch37.ensembl.org site. This tool allows users to parse a vcf file to create a linkage pedigree file (ped) and a marker information file, which together may be loaded into ld visualization tools like Haploview.
