Genome samples information


Information for the 31 samples downloaded from the Short Read Archive from studies comparing CEU and YRI populations. This data is used to specify the adjustment variables in calculateStats. The data is sorted according to the BAM files identifiers. Reads were 36bp long.


A data.frame with 5 columns:


The short name used to identify the sample BAM file.


Whether it was a single-end library or a paired-end library.

The HapMap identifier of the person sequenced. Note that some were sequenced more than once.


Whether the person sequence is a female or a male.


The population the person belongs to.


The samples are from:


unrelated females from the YRI population.


unrelated females from the CEU population.


unrelated males (unrelated to the females too) from the CEU population.
