Implementing Databases (4)
Precalculated structural assignments for whole genomes.

SNPedia is a wiki resource of the functional consequences of human genetic variation as published in peer-reviewed studies. Entries are formatted to allow associations to be assigned to single genotypes as well as sets of genotypes (genosets). Curation occurs through editorial, community/user, and semi-automated processes.

The MOuse NOnCode Lung database
MONOCLdb is an integrative and interactive database designed to retrieve and visualize annotations and expression profiles of long-non coding RNAs (lncRNAs) expressed in Collaborative Cross ( founder mice in response to respiratory influenza and SARS infections.

A crowdsourced collection of personal genomics data. Includes SNP genotyping, exome sequencing data, phenotypic annotation and quantified self tracking data.
