SNPedia in Ensembl


Ensembl is always extending the variation pages to include more information. Did you know that the latest data from SNPedia is now available?

SNPedia is a wiki-style resource for human genetics with public annotation of over 11,000 SNPs, released under a Creative Commons style license. We have integrated it into Ensembl, so you can view these SNP reports along with our other information including variations, genotype and allele frequencies from dbSNP, and SNPs from other sources including UniProt, Affymetrix and Illumina chipsets and phenotype annotations from several genome-wide association studies.

You need to configure the page to view SNPedia. From the variation page, e.g. rs1333049, click on “Configure this page” and then click on “External Data” to select SNPedia to appear in the left hand side menu of all variation pages via DAS. As this information comes directly from SNPedia via DAS it is always up-to-date.
