Genome-Wide Data-Mining of Candidate Human Splice Translational Efficiency Polymorphisms (STEPs) and an Online Database

Figure 2

Diagram showing data sources and flow in generating dbSTEP.

Variant and transcript information is collected through the Ensembl API (Application Programming Interface) and annotated along with other data collected from HapMap and local GWAS (Genome-Wide Association Study) repositories. Data in dbSTEP are then scored and mined for candidate STEPs (Splice Translational Efficiency Polymorphisms).
