I have a sets of SNPs from multiple non-human species and I would like to know for each one which of the twos allele is ancestral and derived. I remember doing before and I think on UCSC genome browser website there was a way to visualise for a given site what that allele was in several other species, so one could infer which allele is likely to be ancestral. However currently I can't find a way to do this on the Ensembl or UCSC website.
If anyone can recommend a way to find out the ancestral allele for a given site, either in an automated way for a batch of SNPs or for single sites in a web browser that would be very helpful.
Similarly, if there is a straightforward way to get the conservation score from one of the many conservation tracks that would be helpful. I know for human data I have used wiggle tracks for conservation, which I found tricky to handle and I wasn't confident that it was working correctly. Is there a good source for finding the conservation score for a batch of SNPs? Ensembl's Biomart doesn't seem to offer this feature, or I missed it.
Help for either or these issues (derived/ancestral allele or conservation score for batches of SNPs) would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
