Dear OMIA supporters,

You may have already seen the news that from September this year, dbSNP
and dbVar will take only human variants and EVA will take only non-human

This rationalisation is understandable and sensible.

Some of you will have seen the following message I have just sent to the
angenmap discussion group, mentioning the present negotiations with EVA -
negotiations that were mentioned in the previous message to this group.

We are making great progress with the development of a simplified variant
submission process to EVA. I will let you all know as soon as there is
something concrete to report.

Dear AnGenMappers

Further to Jim's message below, I am pleased to report that negotiations with key EVA
people are well advanced for a simplified method of submitting single variants or small
numbers of variants to EVA. This is particularly relevant to likely causal variants that
end up in OMIA. The aim is to develop a system that is as straightforward as possible for
submission of single or small numbers of variants to EVA, and hence to OMIA (via the
variant accession ID).
In turn, this will enable OMIA (subject to funding!) to provide a freely downloadable and
always up-to-date table of likely causal variants, with sufficient information to enable
each variant to be located on the current relevant genome assembly.

Dear AnGenMap,

You may have seen the announcement from NCBI that support for non-human species at dbSNP
will cease this fall.

The European Variation Archive will take over. Please see
human-variants for additional information.
