Abstract

The sequence variation project at EBI aims to create a unified resource for browsing and searching sequence differences. Technical advances in reading in new data types and in validating and cross-referencing entries are reported. It is suggested that the hardest problems in unifying mutation databases are related to intellectual property rights. The concept of copylefting is introduced as a potential solution to these.
