NCBI single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) database

Databasecontaining enormous quantity of information relating toSNPs, haplotypes and regions of linkage disequilibrium (LD).
Contains large quantities of SNP-related data for each gene. Type in the gene name; scroll down until the SNP section; select "show all" and read the SNP allele frequencies etc
