Snat: a SNP annotation tool for bovine by integrating various sources of genomic information

January 2011
BMC Genetics;2011, Vol. 12 Issue 1, p85
Academic Journal
The article presents a study which was conducted to develop a bovine single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) annotation tool (Snat) based on a web interface to systematically prioritize these statistically significant SNPs and facilitate follow-up replication studies. Snat provides researchers with a convenient platform to aid functional analyses and accurate evaluation on genes/variants related to SNPs. It also facilitates follow-up replication studies.
