Construction of a Genetic Variant Store

This project proposes to explore and implement a method of storing and retrieving data relating to genetic variation across a population of individuals. Due to the large amount of genetic information each person possesses, such a database requires special attention to minimize the amount of data stored and to create efficient methods of accessing the data. This work will research and test different strategies to build a compact data store that will return results quickly. This data store will be incorporated into the PhenoTips software provided by Gene42 Inc. for use by hospitals specializing in genetic diseases.
