SNP locations for Homo sapiens (dbSNP Build 141)

Bioconductor version: 3.12

SNP locations and alleles for Homo sapiens extracted from NCBI dbSNP Build 141. The source data files used for this package were created by NCBI on May 1st, 2014, and contain SNPs mapped to reference genome GRCh38. Note that these SNPs can be "injected" in BSgenome.Hsapiens.NCBI.GRCh38 or in BSgenome.Hsapiens.UCSC.hg38. IMPORTANT NOTE: This package is deprecated. Please use a SNPlocs data package based on a more recent dbSNP BUILD instead (e.g. BUILD 144 or BUILD 149). You can call BSgenome::available.SNPs() from R to get the list of available SNPlocs data packages.
