SPHINX update

The SPHINX (Sequence, Phenotype, and pHarmacogenomics Integration Exchange) has now been updated based on the most recent genotyping.  There are now 2,882 subjects with available information about the genes sequenced, the number of variants identified per gene, the allele frequency of the variants, as well as the pathway and drug relationships with those 82 pharmacogenes sequenced using the PGRN-Seq platform.

Available to eMERGE Network members and NHGRI program staff, the private side of SPHINX provides exploratory data figures from queries of variant summary data plus phenotype data, including demographics, re-imbursement codes (ICD 9 and CPT), and medications.
