Finding Genetic Variation in Publicly Available Sequence Data Public

The inception of powerful sequencing technologies has allowed the scientific community to share and access vast amounts of genomic sequences through public databases. These data are a useful resource for studying genetic variation. Here, we describe the process that allowed identification of a VNTR (Variable Number Tandem Repeats) within the DAT1 gene (SLC6A3). Given the gene’s well-established role in addictive behavior, we then discuss the possible role of this VNTR in addiction.
