Did you remember to?


1. Search using the upper-right search box, e.g. using the error message.
2. Try the latest version of tools.
3. Include tool and Java versions.
4. Tell us whether you are following GATK Best Practices.
5. Include relevant details, e.g. platform, DNA- or RNA-Seq, WES (+capture kit) or WGS (PCR-free or PCR+), paired- or single-end, read length, expected average coverage, somatic data, etc.
6. For tool errors, include the error stacktrace as well as the exact command.
7. For format issues, include the result of running ValidateSamFile for BAMs or ValidateVariants for VCFs.
8. For weird results, include an illustrative example, e.g. attach IGV screenshots according to Article#5484.
9. For a seeming variant that is uncalled, include results of following Article#1235.

Did we ask for a bug report?


Then follow instructions in Article#1894.

Formatting tip!


Surround blocks of code, error messages and BAM/VCF snippets--especially content with hashes (#)--with lines with three backticks ( ``` ) each to make a code block.

dbSNP - ancestral_allele and gene_name data missing in SubSNP table

Question on the dbSNP database. Looks like the SubSNP table is the only location for ancestral_allele and gene_name information for a given snp_id/subsnp_id. However, these fields in SubSNP are very sparsely populated. For example, if you search the dbSNP web page :

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/SNP/snp_ref.cgi?searchType=adhoc_search&type=rs&rs=rs5

you can see the ancestral allele for rs5 is G. However, if you search snp_id=5 in the SubSNP table, both ancestral_allele and gene_name are null:

mysql> select gene_name,ancestral_allele from SubSNP where snp_id=5;
+-----------+------------------+
| gene_name | ancestral_allele |
+-----------+------------------+
|           |                  |
+-----------+------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

Can anyone explain this discrepancy or know where I can get ancestral_allele or gene_name if not in SubSNP directly ?

    Hi there,

    I have no idea what the SubSNP table is so I can't help you. Perhaps someone from the community will pop up with an answer, but if not I would ask the dbSNP support folks, or post your question on a more general forum like Biostars or SeqAnswers. Good luck!
