Data on genetic polymorphisms particularly single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are now being rapidly accumulated and put on the Internet for public use. It is time consuming and cumbersome, however, for general researchers who are interested in certain groups of genes or proteins to collect and update genetic variation data for these genes and proteins. An agent system is developed to search for and fetch SNPs data related to those genes and proteins pre-registered in the system. The system is tested and improved for collecting SNPs of different types of proteins, including certain drug target proteins.
