Using dbSNPs for mapping
Hi. So I want to take a dbSNP file and highlight SNPs that are found in some BAM files. Instead of filtering these I want to search for these SNPs only. I will then use these SNP positions as markers to trace recombination events that have occured between some strains I am studying. So far I havn't found a good strategy to accomplish this. I was hoping someone over here knows how to parse the dbSNP, and could guide me through it. Alternatively you could use this idea to generate a new tool! Please let me know if you have thoughts, or questions. Thanks! -Keller
