Varietas: a functional variation database portal.

Source PublicationDatabase : the journal of biological databases and curation

Current high-throughput technologies for investigating genomic variation in large population based samples produce data on a scale of millions of variations. Browsing through these results and identifying relevant functional variations is a major hurdle in these genome-wide association studies. In order to help researchers locate the most promising associations, we have developed a web-based database portal called Varietas. Varietas can be used for retrieving information concerning genomic variations such as single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), copy number variants and insertions/deletions, while enabling users to annotate large number of variations in a batch like manner and to find information about related genes, phenotypes and diseases. Varietas also links out to various external genomic databases, allowing users to quickly browse through a set of variations and follow the most promising leads. Varietas periodically integrates data from the major SNP and genome databases, including Ensembl genome database, NCBI dbSNP database, The Genomic Association Database and SNPedia. Database URL:
