ALFRED: allele frequency database
      The ALlele FREquency Database   
ALFRED is a resource of gene frequency data on human populations

References to Classical Markers

ALFRED is focused on DNA-based polymorphisms but we recognize that there is a huge literature on the "classic" protein and blood group markers. As an aid to help users find those data, we are assembling a list of references of relevant books/publications. Please send us details of any additional references that you would like to add to the list.
