Tip of the Week: SKIPPY predicting variants w/ splicing affects

submitted by: OpenHelix

For more information about this resource see our blog post at URL http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=6658. This tip features the NHGRI reosurce named SKIPPY which predicts whether an exonic variant is likely to effect splicing by changing exonic splicing regulatory sequences (ESRs).
