Remove variants found in external database

Any variant track can be used as "external database". It may either be produced by the Biomedical Genomics Workbench, imported or downloaded from variant database resources like dbSNP, 1000 genomes, HapMap etc. (see Import tracks from file). Hence, this tool has overlapping function with the three "From Databases" tools.

To run the Remove variants found in external database, go to the toolbox:

        Toolbox | Remove Variants (Image remove_information_closed_16_n_p) | Remove Variants Found in External Database (Image remove_variants_found_in_ext_db_16_h_p)
