   wrong.  Sorry, working on a fix for that.

I think it is very important to include flanking sequences. A
certainly longer discussion is the strandedness of the SNPs in
dbSNP. Coming up with a solution would clearly ease the use of the

In addition you might want to check with Illumina on their SNP

We are currently working on proposals and will keep you posted. Is
there an Email list I can subscribe to?
