Important announcement from HapMap about data archiving

This is from the HapMap team for the human data (not the green HapMap I referenced recently). Older data is going to be removed from the HapMap.org browser and from BioMart. It will still be available in the ftp archive–but I just thought a heads-up was in order for folks who might not be on the mailing list:

Beginning July 1st, HapMap data releases prior to October 2008 (or release #24) will no longer be available via the HapMap Genome Browser and HapMart utility.

The following three data releases will continue to be served via the HapMap Genome Browser:

* HapMap Release #24 — Latest HapMap (phase I+II) data release

http://www.hapmap.org/cgi-perl/gbrowse/hapmap24_B36/

* HapMap3 Draft #2 (hapmap3_r2) — Latest HapMap3 (phase III) data release

http://www.hapmap.org/cgi-perl/gbrowse/hapmap3r2_B36/

* HapMap Release #27 — Latest merged HapMap (phase I+II+III) data release

http://www.hapmap.org/cgi-perl/gbrowse/hapmap27_B36/

The following data release will continue to be served via HapMart:
* HapMap Release #27 — Latest merged HapMap (phase I+II+III) data release

http://hapmart.hapmap.org/BioMart/martview

All other data releases will still be available for FTP download:
