I downloaded exome data from gnomad to get the allele frequency of some SNPs that I'm analyzing. The SNPs are from external resource. Some SNPs (in my data) are not present in the exome data (in gnomad):
"No genes were found in this region"
As part of my report question for homework I need to answer this:
"Are the SNPs in your data that are not in gnomad are outside genes?",
What does it mean SNP outside genes? Does it mean that they are not in the exome data but in the genome data on gnomad?
I found this in an article:
Also found this:
"SNP markers might be selected outside of exomes or the direct cause of a genetic mutation" does this means that it is found in the genome but not exome data in gnomad as it is outside the gene?
Basically, I can't seem to understand what is a SNP outside a gene and can I see this information in gnomad.
