Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are common DNA sequence variations among individuals. They promise to significantly advance our ability to understand and treat human disease. In this talk, we will introduce some fundamental computational problems in analyzing large-scale human genome SNP data, including the structure of SNP sequences (called haplotypes) on the genome, selection of representative SNPs (called tag SNPs), inference of missing SNPs, and haplotype inference.
