The SNPcurator: literature mining of enriched SNP disease associations

PMCID: 5844215
PMID: 29688369
DOI: 10.1093/database/bay020

[…] xtracted from GWA studies was published online ( q = node/639). The corpus was constructed by querying the GoPubMed ( with 20 popular SNPs fetched from SNPedia. The original 20 SNPs names were used as seeds for the abstract collection process that resulted in 360 abstracts with 875 distinct SNPs. The novelty of the SNPPhenA corpus relies in ranking t […]


Inferring genetic origins and phenotypic traits of George Bähr, the architect of the Dresden Frauenkirche

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5794802
PMID: 29391530
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-20180-z

[…] s not include SNPs that can be used to determine hair color.To further elucidate what high density SNP capture methods can provide on such specimen, an extensive literature survey was performed using SNPedia and the database mining tool Promethease. The results of this analysis are shown in detail in Table . Several potential candidate mutations were found in George Bähr that are commonly found in […]


Consumer use and response to online third‐party raw DNA interpretation services

PMCID: 5823680
PMID: 29471590
DOI: 10.1002/mgg3.340

[…] ation, including interpretation for health purposes (Bettinger, ; ). Third‐party sites include companies such as Promethease, which is a literature retrieval service (based on literature cited in the SNPedia wiki), that creates personal DNA reports for $5. Other sites offer services to interpret a range of health conditions which vary in price and service (e.g., Genetic Genie, Genomapp, Interpreto […]


Translational Bioinformatics: Past, Present, and Future

[…] atus for 36 genes . Note that a 23andMe customer is able to download his or her raw genomic data and to use information from other websites to interpret the results, including Promethease (, Geneticgenie (, openSNP (, and Interpretome ( for health-related associations.Another importa […]


G Links: a gene centric link acquisition service

PMCID: 4670005
PMID: 26673001
DOI: 10.5256/f1000research.6153.r6750

[…] ultiple filtering and extraction conditions can be specified using “|” (vertical bar) as the separator, in order to formulate complex queries. For example, retrieval of SNP information from dbSNP and SNPedia for human genes with known polymorphisms related to breast and ovarian cancer in tabular format is queried as|:o […]


Crowdsourced direct to consumer genomic analysis of a family quartet

BMC Genomics

[…] ientists and companies to contribute results. We have contributions from scientists who wanted to carry out an experiment to analyse a cohort of individuals or test data for development of new tools (SNPedia tools [], Ingenuity analyses) or for demonstrating new products to prospective customers and clients (InSilicoDB, BIOBASE Genome Trax, Orion Integrated Biosciences Inc., GeneTalk, and Diploid […]
