Allele Frequency database for Kurds - Kurdish ALFRED

In general, frequencies of a lot of SNPs of various populations can be looked up in the "Allele Frequency database" or ALFRED. ALFRED is a good source and I used it here but unfortunately no Kurdish data are included in the ALFRED database. And for a while I was wondering what the Kurdish frequency of certain SNPs in the genome would be. This is why I decided to write an Excel file (xlsx file) to determine the Kurdish frequencies of 930,000 SNPs. Today, I want to share this file. Caution, the file is almost 50 MB large!

In order to type in your SNP of interest you have to type in the ID of the SNP, similar to the "Browse data" website of 23andme here. You can only look up one SNP at a time.

How to use it:
1. Download Excel file here.
2. Type in the ID of the SNP of interest in the cell "C3" of the "Kurdish ALFRED" sheet.
3. You are done.

To give you an idea how the results look like:
