Is it possible to access dbSNP data from GRCh37 via eutils? For example, consider this query via efetch:

http://eutils.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/eutils/efetch.fcgi?db=snp&id=78879762&retmode=xml

The result contains an Assembly element that references GRCh38:

<Assembly dbSnpBuild="142" genomeBuild="38.1" groupLabel="GRCh38" current="true" reference="true">

Is it possible to get the same data via eutils, but for GRCh37, instead of GRCh38? Thanks.

I don't think one can specify the assembly as an eutils argument. As an alternative, you could try using Ensembl (grch37.ensembl.org), it has dbSNP data.

That might work, but is there a GRCh37 version of Ensembl's REST API?

There's http://grch37.rest.ensembl.org. I've not used the REST API yet so I am not sure if it gives access to all the data as the perl API does.
