  1. dbSNP (View Publication)
    Full Name of the Resource : Database of single nucleotide polymorphisms
    Resource Category : Databases -> Human Genes and Diseases -> General Polymorphism Databases

    Brief Description : The NCBI dbSNP database of genome variation complements GenBank by providing the resources to build comprehensive catalogs of common genomic variations in humans and other organisms. With build 121, dbSNP has over 26 million submissions for variations in human and 25 other species, and this number is expected to grow as additional genomes are surveyed for nucleotide diversity. dbSNP's largest set of data is currently 19.8 million variation submissions for human; clustered by dbSNP staff into 9.8 million unique, variable positions in the human genome. Author-driven submissions of flanking sequence, alleles, population-specific allele frequencies, individual genotypes, validation status and haplotype configurations are associated with this non-redundant reference set of markers, integrated with three public genome assemblies, and indexed with internal NCBI resources such as Entrez Genes, GenBank, UniGene and PubMed. The complete contents of dbSNP are freely available via anonymous FTP in a variety of useful formats at ftp://ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/snp/
