Archived Genome Template Packages for Utilizing dbSNP/COSMIC/GERP Associations


DNASTAR provides genome template packages for SeqMan NGen, which enable use of the dbSNP/COSMIC/GERP association feature. The most current builds are located on our genome template packages page, however, should you need an older build, they are listed below. The following archived data packages contain the template sequence, annotations, and associated dbSNP/COSMIC/GERP entries for a particular organism build.


To use one of these data packages:

  1. 1. Download the appropriate zipped file based on the organism you are using.
  2. 2. Decompress the zipped file.
  3. 3. When the Project Setup Wizard prompts you to specify a template, select the decompressed directory using Add Genome Package.
