Standalone variation services replace Variation Reporter


As of July 2018, a new set of standalone variation services replaces the variant matching functions of Variation Reporter. Variation Reporter was a tool designed to search human sequence variation data by location and to report matching variants found in dbSNP, dbVar, and ClinVar.

The new services are faster, better at handling variants in repeat regions, and scalable to accommodate the continued explosive growth of variation volume. You can find more information about the services in the initial blog post and online SPDI document.

If you would like to report any issues related to these new services and/or would like to provide comments, please write to snp-admin@ncbi.nlm.nih.gov.

If you have any specific questions about the NCBI site in general, contact us at info@ncbi.nlm.nih.gov.

We appreciate your continued support and interaction with the NCBI tools.
