- dbSNP 137 Available for mm10
We are pleased to announce the release of three tracks derived
from dbSNP build 137, available on the mouse assembly (GRCm38/mm10).
dbSNP build 137 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
As for dbSNP build 137, there are three tracks in this release.
One is a track containing all mappings of reference SNPs to the
mouse assembly, labeled "All SNPs (137)". The other two tracks
are subsets of this track and show interesting and easily defined
subsets of dbSNP:
- Common SNPs (137): uniquely mapped variants that appear in
at least 1% of the population
- Mult. SNPs (137): variants that have been mapped to more
than one genomic location
By default, only the Common SNPs (137) are visible; other
tracks must be made visible using the track controls.
You will find the three SNPs (137) tracks on the Mouse Dec.
2011 (GRCm38/mm10) browser in the "Variation and Repeats" group.
The tracks were produced at UCSC by Angie Hinrichs and Luvina Guruvadoo.
