  • HGMD vs UCSC dbsnp

    Does any one evaluate the HGMD mutation database vs the UCSC dbsnp databases?

    Thanks

    Hey,

    I haven't really worked with HGMD but glancing through the website it looks like there is a significant difference between the variations stored in HGMD compared to dbSNP. Especially with the v131 coming up which has SNP data from 1000genomes project.

    Please excuse me if I am making a understatement about HGMD as I am not well versed with the dbase.

    Just my 2 cents,
    -Abhi

      Yes, there is a significient difference between HGMD and dbSNP. HGMD is collecting only disease associated human mutations including other types of mutations such as micro-lesion (deletions, insertions, indels), gross deletions, gross insertions/duplications, complex rearrangements, and repeat variations. About 20% of HGMD SNPs have dbSNP links/identifiers. Most of the HGMD mutations are not represented in dbSNP.

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin


        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist on Modified Bases...

        Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
        by seqadmin


        Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...
