rsnps 0.4.0 2020-08-28

MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS

NCBI / dbSNP changed their API:

  • Rewrote ncbi_snp_query to accommodate the new API (#86, #88).
  • Removed the functions ncbi_snp_query2 an ncbi_snp_summary.

MINOR IMPROVEMENTS

  • Reordered ncbi_snp_query dataframe output to have chromosome and bp beside each other (#70).
  • Changed ncbi_snp_query parameter (SNPs) to lower case (snps).

DOCUMENTATION FIXES

  • Restructured and fixed a typo in README.Rmd and added link to vignette (#63).
  • Added info of two new maintainers to DESCRIPTION.
  • Added relevant API links to vignette.

BUG FIXES

  • Fixed the test for allphenotypes function by making it less specific (#72).

rsnps 0.3.0 2018-09-20

DEPRECATED AND DEFUNCT

  • ld_search() is now defunct. The Broad Institute has taken down the SNAP service behind the function. (#46) (#53) (#60)

NEW FEATURES

  • the three NCBI functions gain a new parameter key for passing in an NCBI Entrez API key. You can alternatively (and we encourage this) store your key as an environment variable and we’ll use that instead. The key allows you to have higher rate limits than without a key (#58)
  • gains new function ncbi_snp_summary() for summary data on a SNP (#31)

MINOR IMPROVEMENTS

  • http requests are now done using crul instead of httr (#44)
  • now using markdown formatted documentation (#56)
  • documented in ncbi_snp_query() that we can not change the assembly (#49)

BUG FIXES

  • fix to ncbi_snp_query2(): when many IDs passed in, we were failing with a “URI too long” message. We now check how many Ids are passed in and do a POST request as needed (#39)
  • fixed problem in ncbi_snp_query() where it wasn’t pulling out correctly the gene name and BP position (#25)
