Kaviar - known variants for hg18

Kaviar (~Known VARiants) is a very simple tool for answering a very specific question: What variants have been reported already for a given specific genomic location?
Current data sources: dbSNP v. 131, the three pilots of the 1000Genomes project, several individual genomes from PGP, the Saqqaq ancient genome, the Neanderthal genome (and the human populations sampled in it).
In total, 29,485,279 distinct genomic positions have annotated variants.
(Last data update: September 21st, 2010.)
