SNP locations for Homo sapiens (dbSNP Build 130)

Bioconductor version: Release (2.11)

SNP locations and alleles for Homo sapiens extracted from NCBI dbSNP Build 130. The source data files used for this package were created by NCBI on 5-6 May, 2009, and contain SNPs mapped to reference genome NCBI Build 36.1, which is identical to the hg18 genome from UCSC. Therefore, the SNPs in this package can be "injected" in BSgenome.Hsapiens.UCSC.hg18 and they will land at the correct location.
