Use the following instructions to access and download the .fsa, .hid or .csv DNA files:

1. The dowloadable files are available at lftdi.com. There are three data types:

     a. Raw .fsa or .hid files;

     b. Unfiltered .csv files that contain the sample name, allele designation, basepair size, and peak heights. The samples were  analyzed using GeneMapper IDx using an RFU threshold of 1 RFU;

     c. Filtered .csv files that contain the sample name, allele designation, basepair size, and peak heights. The samples were  analyzed using GeneMapper IDx using an RFU threshold of 1 RFU and artifacts, such as pull-up, complex pull-up, minus A and dye dissociation peaks were filtered.

2.  Information on the types of samples available, the naming convention, and the methods used to generate the samples can be found in the .pdf document on the lftdi.com webpage. The known genotypes of the samples are found in the file folders.

3.  Questions/comments regarding the web application, and the downloadable files can be addressed to Catherine M. Grgicak at c.grgicak@rutgers.edu.
