Macaca SNP Database

MACSNPdb is an open-access SNP database comprising ~80.88 million high-quality non-redundant SNPs called from 20 macaques that may assist researchers to investigate interspecies genetic divergence between macaques. MACSNPdb allows users to browse and retrieve individual, sepcific and non-redundant SNPs. In particular, users can retrieve non-synonymous SNPs that may have deleterious effects on protein structure or function within macaque orthologs of human disease and drug-target genes. MACSNPdb also integrates gene functional annotation information including GO term, KEGG pathway, Pfam and InterPro domains.


  • MACSNPdb allows you to browse macaque individual SNPs, specific SNPs and non-redundant SNPs.
  • MACSNPdb also allows you to browse disease-associated and drug-targeted genes related SNPs, particularly non-synonymous SNPs which may have deleterious effects on protein structure or function.
  • The data collected from 20 macaques covered all the four species groups within genus Macaca, and thus, it can facilitate you to conduct genotyping comparative analysis between different macaques.
  • MACSNPdb not only provides detailed information for SNPs but also provides gene functional information.
  • MACSNPdb provides a flexible download function to assit you to search and retrieve desired SNPs
