I want to call the variants of my samples from the bam file using MuSE and I need the dbSNP VCF file. I used Grch38.84 for the reference genome and I need the corresponding dbSNP file. I have some questions.

  1. Is there any general database for all of these files that I can download this file? because I searched a lot but I could not find it. Maybe I don't know the correct keywords.
  2. Should the dbSNP file correspond to the exact version of the reference fast file? even the version? (84)
  3. What is the 84 in Grch38.84? Why there is Grch38.p5 in some places? Can I also use the dbSNP vcf file for Grch38.p5?

Best, Shadi

Thank you very much. I see this question. which you post. But the link that it suggested does not have exactly Grch38.84. It has Grch38.p7 and I am not sure if they are the same and if I can use it for my version of the reference. Are these tags (versions) important or not?
