New dbVar FTP Directory Structure


NCBI’s database of structural variation, dbVar has a restructured FTP directory. The old directories can be found in archive.

Highlights include:

  • added aggregated vcf files by assembly
  • named files based on major assembly and region or call
  • replaced study-specific directories with file-type directories
  • renamed “.tab” files to “.tsv”
  • moved old human and all non-human files to archive

Refer to README.ftp for full details of the new GVF, VCF, TSV, and XML files.
