In response to a need for a general catalog of genome variation to address the large-scale sampling designs required by association studies, gene mapping and evolutionary biology, the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) has established the dbSNP database [S.T.Sherry, M.Ward and K. Sirotkin (1999) Genome Res., 9, 677-679]. Submissions to dbSNP will be integrated with other sources of information at NCBI such as GenBank, PubMed, LocusLink and the Human Genome Project data.

The Single‐Nucleotide Polymorphism database (dbSNP) is a variation database at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) and the unit describes one of the result display formats called GeneView to obtain information about all submitted SNPs in a particular gene.

SNP databases and pharmacogenetics: great start, but a long way to go

Effort to update compilation databases, such as HGVbase, GeneSNP, PharmGKB, and HOWDY, and the aggressive removal of false positives from all databases is required if these resources are to facilitate the intended growth in pharmacogenetics research.
