Searching for a Class of Variations in dbSNP

Searching for indels in dbSNP

If I want to download all the indels from dbSNP, do I download the SNP table? If so, where is it?

Before I give you the steps to download the SNP table, I would like to mention that you can also get all the indels housed in dbSNP using an Entrez Search:


Go to the Entrez SNP page, click on the grey “Limits” tab near the top of the page.


Once you are on the limits page, go to the “SNP Class” box, and click on “in del”.

Here are the steps for downloading the SNP table:


Go to the left blue side bar on the dbSNP home page, and Click on “General”.


From the released set of choices, click on “FTP Download”.


For the purpose of this example, I will assume you need the SNP table for human. To find it, you would go to the human ‚Äč/database/organism_data/ directory.
