Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $643,771)
The primary objective of this project is to provide a web interface "Forensic Research/Reference On Genetics knowledge base" (FROG-kb) conducive for teaching, research and a referential tool from a forensic standpoint. The underlying data will be provided by the already extensively used and referenced ALlele FREquency Database ALFRED (http://alfred.med.yale.edu). The project would allow even more specifically forensic SNP and STR data and information to be curated and entered. The new web based interface for FROG-kb will be designed to make these data available to forensic students, researchers, and practitioners in a relevant user-friendly manner.
