If you're doing genetics and use SNP, you've probably often wanted to extract information from dbSNP. A long time ago, I wrote some scripts to scrape their webpages for information. Now that I'm dealing with millions of SNPs, that's no longer possible. I needed my own mirror of dbSNP. I did this as of build 132, and since they've now released build 135, I wrote up what to do, and shared the git repository which has the utilities and schemas I used.
