About rSNPBase

rSNPBase is a database that provides reliable, comprehensive, and user-friendly regulatory annotations on rSNPs. It will assist researchers in selecting candidate SNPs for further genetic studies (especially for QTL studies), identifying causal variants of certain phenotypes, and exploring in-depth molecular mechanisms.

    An example for database usage

rSNPBase is different from previous SNP annotation databases on such features:
1) To improve reliability, rSNPBase annotated SNPs with reference to experimentally supported regulatory elements other than predicted data.
2) rSNPBase focuses on rSNPs involved in a wide range of regulation types, including proximal and distal transcriptional regulation and post-transcriptional regulation and identifies their potentially regulated genes.
3) Linkage disequilibrium (LD) correlations between SNPs were analyzed so that the regulatory feature is annotated to SNP-set rather than a single SNP.
4) The spatio-temporal and experimental eQTL labels are provided in rSNPBase for a better annotation.
