|What is UASIS?|
|Heterogeneous Representations of SNPs|
UASIS stands for Universal Automatic SNP Identification System. It is an online platform designed specifically for Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) discovery and nomenclatures. It aims to providing instant naming service for SNPs, so that researchers would not worry about referencing SNPs with ambiguity. Meanwhile, UASIS enables users to cross-check various nomenclatures in different SNP databases. It employs state-of-art algorithms and data structures so that it is able to give universal identities within 15 seconds response time.
