Dataset
SweGen: a whole-genome data resource of genetic variability in a cross-section of the Swedish population

Description

DNA from blood samples were whole genome sequenced using Illumina X technology at SciLifeLab Uppsala and SciLifeLab Stockholm. The sequencing data was analyzed with the GATK best practices pipeline to obtain a joint called variant frequency dataset. For more information, see: https://www.nature.com/articles/ejhg2017130
