We are searching for variants in dbSNP using ncbi's eutils. Our variants are recorded using the positive strand. In order to deal with the problem of strandedness, where the variant is recorded in dbSNP using the negative strand, we would need to determine is the variant strand is positive or negative.

After performing our esearch of the genomic coordinates and chromosome and performing efetch, getting the docsum I can't seem to find the strand information from the results or even the reference allele.
