The existence of different online genotyping data repositories for population studies forces the researcher not only to query them all, but to have to adapt to the different results obtained. We have developed a simple yet powerful web framework for any given population based SNP genotype database that is able to deal even with virtually any number of genotypes, and that is also capable of summarizing all that information into the most common population genetics indices such as allele frequencies, heterozygosity, FST or In.
We have also built a web interface to present the statistical summaries in a succinct but informative manner. These aids, that go from: allowing the combination of different populations into a single user-defined query to presenting allele frequencies in pie charts, will allow the researcher to obtain the critical information underlying each SNP, and to be able to compare the results of different and customizable population sets of interest.
