Content

The Mouse SNP Database website contains a searchable depository of mouse single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). A similar facility already exists at the Genome Center at the Massachussets Institute of Technology (MIT), but this database, developed by Roche, contains more data - 3,482 SNPs and data from 15 mouse strains at the time of reporting, compared to 2,848 SNPs and data from eight mouse strains at MIT.

Timeliness

The Roche Mouse SNP Database appears to be up to date. The last update at the time of writing was 9 August 2001, whereas the last recorded update for the MIT database was 1 April 2000. However, the main Genome Center website at MIT is undergoing major renovations and so, it is to be hoped, will their mouse database.

Best feature

The site is extremely simple to use: the user does not have to work through long help sections or FAQs to find out how to use the database. The results are clear, easy to understand and easy to access. The interlinking between the results adds an extra dimension.
