What’s The Answer? (SNPs in promoters)

Biostars is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions and issues. We are members of the Biostars_logo community and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at Biostars that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Every Thursday we will be highlighting one of those items or discussions here in this thread. You can ask questions in this thread, or you can always join in at Biostars.

This week’s highlighted question is one that I hear a lot in workshops.

Question: Database for finding SNPs (Mutation-deletion/SNPs) In the promotor region of any gene

Is there any online database in which I can find the mutations in the promotor region of oncogenes. Cosmic and other databases are not good for that purpose.Any one ???

The only answer over there has several nice options–go have a look.  We’ve talked about some of them, but I should really think about doing tips-of-the-week on at least one of them. Stay tuned.
