I have been trying to download the splice site mutations found in dbSNP along with their corresponding genomic coordinates and nucleotide changes. I have spent way too much time trying to create a local mySQL instance of dbSNP from this site: https://cgsmd.isi.edu/dbsnpq/downloads.php#dbSNPdownloadsTables . The sql dumps and .txt dumps are not in UTF-8 encoding and I cannot figure out an encoding to get them to render normal text.
Any suggestions on ways to get this data from dbSNP? Any help would be much appreciated!
