The STAR Project

The STAR Project

STAR logo The main goal of the STAR project is the creation of a detailed haplotype map for the rat. To address this goal, the STAR project consortium conducted sequencing and genotyping of a number of rat strains and provide public access to the data through this web page. All of the data described here has been integrated into the Ensembl databases and is available through the standard Enesmbl web interfaces and the Ensembl API.

This page provides the SNPs discovered from a set of approximately 240,000 sequencing reads and the results of genotyping almost 400 rat strains at approximately 21,000 markers.

Data can be downloaded from our FTP server:

Additional data mining on the set of genotyped SNPs is provided at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics at Oxford University.

The STAR project is a specific targeted research project funded by European Union through Framework Programme 6. Full details regarding the STAR project are available at http://www.snp-star.eu.

All of the data is made freely available before scientific publication with the following understanding:

  1. The data may be freely downloaded, used in analyses, and repackaged in databases.
  2. Users are free to use the data in scientific papers analysing particular genes and regions if the provider of these data is properly acknowledged. See the STAR consortium website listed above for credit and contact information.
  3. The centres producing the data reserve the right to publish the initial large-scale analyses of the data set, including large-scale identification of regions of evolutionary conservation, haplotype structure, and other large-scale genomic analysis. Large-scale refers to regions with size on the order of a chromosome (that is, 30 Mb or more).
  4. This policy is in accordance with, and with the understandings in the Fort Lauderdale meeting discussing Community Resource Projects.
  5. Any redistribution of the data should carry this notice.
