1000 Genomes - international collaboration - first project to sequence the genomes of a large number of people, to provide a comprehensive resource on human genetic variation - http://www.1000genomes.org/
dbGaP - (NIH-NCBI) "database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP) was developed to archive and distribute the results of studies that have investigated the interaction of genotype and phenotype." Some information is publicly available; access to some information is controlled - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gap
HvrBase++ (autosomal, mitochondrial, and X-DNA) analysis tools for primates developed at the Max Planck Institute, monitors data sequences on GenBank - http://www.hvrbase.org/
OpenSNP - open-source project of several masters students inspired by 23andMe tests (http://opensnp.org/faq) - allows customers of direct-to-customer genetic tests (23andMe, deCODEme as of 30 August 2012) to publish their test results, find others with similar genetic variations, learn more about their results, find the latest primary literature on their variations and help scientists to find new associations. - http://opensnp.org/
- nice for links on a SNP to other sites such as SNPedia, PLOS pubs, Mendeley pubs, users who share the SNP
Stanford - Stanford University's Interpretome - utilities written as exercises for students in a course on Personalized Medicine and Genomics. Includes ancestry painting after comparing autosomal DNA test data to Hapmap2 or Hapmap3 and several other ways of exploring your DNA results.
