Welcome To Ricopili

Ricopili is a tool for visualizing regions of interest in select GWAS data sets.

The following data sets are currently available for free access:

How it works

Choose a data set and enter a genomic location or a gene name in the form below. A .pdf plot will be generated, as well as a text file with single SNP results. You can also specify the following options:

  • Clumping: Independent regions will be colored differently, to highlight LD. If you request more than one clump, be sure to have at least one SNP passing the specified p-value-threshold (for performance reasons.)
  • SNP: SNPs in the region are colored by LD to this index SNP.
  • Anonymity: Frequency information is from HapMap to protect anonymity.
  • NHGRI results: Results from the NHGRI GWAS catalog will be included in the plot.

Finally, please note that this tool is in development (it was released on September 19th, 2011) and should be considered "beta". In particular, our development server is not equipped for high traffic. If the server fails to respond to your request, please try again at a later time.

Please contact us if you encounter any problems, or if you have any suggestions.
