SNP Terminology development with VISTA

Designing a genomic variant ontology for common use within the open i2b2 community poses a unique challenge.   Variants may be defined across several domains:  dbSNP rs number, HGVS name, or gene/flanking sequence pairs. It is often difficult to know if variants from different domains are in fact equivalent.  This project investigates ways to form a common basis for describing variants.
