NOTICE: Batch Query service will be discontinued June 2018
dbSNP build 151 release later this year will be the last dbSNP build
that will support the batch query service. This service will run until
June 2018 when it will be retired.
Users of human data should migrate to the new Variation Service which allow retrieval of RS in JSON format.
Please see the announcement regarding dbSNP future expansion and
You can send your questions and concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org.
dbSNP batch query allows you to retrieve
a large number of SNPs in a batch using dbSNP accessions for individual
submissions (ss#), submitter id's (handle|local_snp_id), or dbSNP RefSNP
cluster ID's (rs#). You will be notified by email when your
query is done with instructions for retrieving the result. There are two
ways to submit the query from dbSNP:
Select "Enter #" as a submission format
below and enter the numbers directly on the next web page .
Select "Upload #" as a submission format below and upload a
text file containing a list of SNP IDs on the upload web page. This
query will accept lists generated by the users (Formatting instructions
below) or result set downloaded from dbSNP or Entrez
SNP (See sidebar and instruction).
File formatting instructions:
The list can only contain one type
of entry, either rs, ss, or local snp ID.
Each entry must contain the identifier
prefix "ss" or "rs" (ie. ss23411 or rs23424) or the handle of
the submitting lab and a vertical bar followed by the local
snp ID (i.e. TSC-CSHL|TSC0000026).
The entries does not have to be
ordered, but they are limited to one per line.
Save the list as a text file.
To begin, choose a type of submission format below and you will be directed
to the correct web submission form for entering your email, SNP IDs, and
