SNP Databases

An installation package including the databases dbSNP, 1000 Genomes, ExAC, gnomAD, ClinVar, CLINVITAE and COSMIC is available for genomes hg19 and hg38 (for hg38 1000 Genomes, ExAC and gnomAD are not available).


NOTE: This package can be used for new installations as well as update for old installations.


NOTE: The database can only be used in case the genome hg19 or hg38 respectively is available in your SeqPilot installation.


How to install the SNP databases:


Update: Delete old database version first. Then proceed as explained for New installation below. Delete the folders containing the database information for the reference genome you want to replace. By default these are the following two folders of your SeqPilot installation (C:\SeqPilot):

  • "GeneFiles\GenomeVar" and "GeneFiles\GenomeDBVar". Note: only delete the listed sub folders GenomeVar and Genome DBVar not the complete GeneFiles folder!

New installation: unzip the downloaded file (see below) into the GeneFiles-directory of your SeqPilot installation (default: C:\SeqPilot\GeneFiles).
