Fwd: dbSNP 138 available for hg19

Fwd: please follow footer link

[genome-announce] dbSNP 138 available for hg19: "We are pleased to announce the release of four tracks derived from dbSNP

build 138, available on the human assembly (GRCh37/hg19). dbSNP build

138 is available at NCBI. The new tracks contain additional annotation

data not included in previous dbSNP tracks, with corresponding coloring

and filtering options in the Genome Browser.

As for dbSNP build 138, there are four tracks in this release. One is a

track containing all mappings of reference SNPs to the human assembly,

labeled 'All SNPs (138)'. The other three tracks are subsets of this

track and show interesting and easily defined subsets of dbSNP:

* Common SNPs (138): uniquely mapped variants that appear in at least

1% of the population or are 100% non-reference

* Flagged SNPs (138): uniquely mapped variants, excluding Common SNPs,

that have been flagged by dbSNP as 'clinically associated'

* Mult. SNPs (138): variants that have been mapped to more than one

genomic location

By default, only the Common SNPs (138) are visible; other tracks must be

made visible using the track controls.

You will find the four SNPs (138) tracks on the Human Feb. 2009

(GRCh37/hg19) browser in the 'Variation and Repeats' group.

Many thanks to dbSNP at NCBI for the data. The tracks were produced at

UCSC by Angie Hinrichs and Luvina Guruvadoo.
