Populations » Add New HLA Population Study


This page is for the submission of primary genotyping data (at individual level), such as that described by a Short Population report for Human Immunology (see here).

If your study contains frequencies only (and no individual-level data) for HLA, please click here.

To get started - you may wish to view our video tutorials (best viewed in HD)

Please provide the data of your population by using the Java Upload Tool.

Click here to download the latest version (1.18) of the upload tool or (UK Mirror)

Help with using the upload tool is available here.

This tool will allow you to format and validate your data for submission to the Allele Frequencies Net Database.
The 'SampleFiles.zip' file contains template files that can be edited with Microsoft Excel, and then loaded in to the Allele Frequencies Upload Tool.

This is an executable Java (.jar) file. You will need to have a 'Java Runtime Environment' installed on your computer. Most computers will already have this installed, but you can download compatible versions here or here.

(With some browsers, such as Chrome, you will see a warning that the browser 'might be unable to use the Java plugin'. You can ignore this warning, as the AFND upload tool does not use a browser plugin. Depending on your browser, you can check your current Java version automatically here, or manually here )
