NewSimons Genome Diversity Project (SGDP) Dataset

The Simons Genome Diversity Project (SGDP) Open Access dataset contains complete genome sequences from 130 diverse human populations. It is the largest dataset of diverse, high-quality human genome sequences ever reported and includes many deeply divergent human populations that are not well-represented in other datasets, which makes the SGDP dataset ideal for interrogating the genomic landscape of different populations.

This dataset is available for analysis under the Public projects tab of the top navigation bar. You won’t pay for storage of the raw data files: copy the entire project or select files into your own project on the Platform to take conduct further analysis. Or, compare SGDP data alongside of your own data.
