Dear all,

There have been quite a lot of interest in getting dbSNP into SRS.
I've now written the first version of parsers for the new dbSNP
(XML) format. Since the XML support for SRS is not yet ready and I had
parsing code for it anyway, I created three flat files from XML and
wrote parsers for them; quick and easy. Note that the XML will be
change and have richer representation of dbSNP relational database
schema in near future. Also, note that current dump in the NCBI ftp
server contains data submitted before September 5th, only.
