All I got are lists of SNPs with their physical positions, now I would like to convert them to genetic distance (centiMorgan) to calculate iHS.

I've donwloaded the latest HapMap II SNPs from but found that there are not enough SNPs I need.

What do you suggest?

Thanks for your help!

Position of genes in centiMorgans?

How to convert centimorgan to base pair

There are still not enough region that I want. Many SNPs cannot be located in the data. Besides, if there are more than one SNPs in a same region, do you think their centiMorgans are the same?

A quick and dirty solution is to do a linear interpolation:

One problem with this interpolation method is that when there are gaps of several SNPs, some of them get the same genetic distance (cM).
