KGVDB: a population-based genomic map of CNVs tagged by SNPs in Koreans: "

Summary: Despite a growing interest in a correlation between copy number variations (CNVs) and flanking single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), few databases provide such information. In particular, most information on CNV available so far was obtained in Caucasian and Yoruba populations, and little is known about CNV in Asian populations. This paper presents a database that provides CNV regions tagged by SNPs in about 4,700 Koreans, which were detected under strict quality control, manually curated and experimentally validated.
