FINDbase design allows storing and retrieval of causative mutation and pharmacogenomic markers allele frequencies data in various population and ethnic groups worldwide. These data are available for research use only in the fields of human population genetics and molecular genetics.
We are fully aware that genetic, like historical and biological, data can be misused for stigmatization and discrimination against certain ethnic groups, or individuals and as such the use of the allele frequency data stored in FINDbase for such purposes would not be ethically or scientifically justified. In addition, FINDbase contains allele frequencies calculated on a summary level, and as such any personal information that would lead to individual identification, is removed.
By entering FINDbase, you agree that you will not use the data to discriminate or stigmatize any population or ethnic group.
