  I've finally committed my dbsnp converter [1]. it's currently just in a
branch of my fork of bio2rdf-scripts, but eventually we'll get it into
bio2rdf.  it works by calling eutils and converting selected elements into
RDF. it works with a comma-separated list of rs ids, or by processing the
set of omim-related clinically relevant snps. i'm planning to add support
to process the pharmgkb variants, and maybe all of dbsnp, once i figure out
how to get the big list of them.

you can browse an example entry [2] on my *temporary* endpoint, or do a
search using the facet browser [3]. suggestions welcome
