  Scottish National Party - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The SNP was formed in 1934 from the merger of the National Party of Scotland and the Scottish Party.
The SNP first won a parliamentary seat in 1945 by-election but their candidate refused to attend Parliament on principle and lost the seat after three months.
However such a view is more difficult to sustain in the present political climate with the SNP moderating many of its views on socio-economic issues, and the fact that they are no longer the most left-wing of the established political parties in Scotland with the emergence of the SSP (Scottish Socialist Party).

 Socialism Today - SNP leadership contest
Swinney is part of the 'gradualist' wing of the SNP leadership which sees independence being won through the gradual extension of the powers of the Scottish parliament from Westminster.
It was not accidental that the SNP last year relegated the demand for independence to tenth place in their programme for the Holyrood elections.
Before that, the SNP leadership had illusions that big business could be persuaded to accept, or at least remain neutral on, the question of an independent Scotland.

 SNP and Local Government   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
SNP Councillors regularly show their constituents that the SNP can make a difference to their lives at local level and by doing so convince the electorate that we can do the same at national level.
The SNP councillor is the representative of his or her community as well as the SNP so the Party demands the highest standards of integrity and professionalism from our councillors.
SNP councillors, guided by the national policies of the party, have the responsibility of ensuring that appropriate local policies are developed and proposed within their local authority.

 SNP Annual Conference '96.
SNP leader Alex Salmond progressed the apparent gaffe by indicating that the Tory Party thus could not subscribe to a fair and non-discriminatory party because of their concern with perceived additional costs.
Until SNP vice convener Alex Neil scored an incredible own goal by likening shadow Scottish Secretary George Robertson to Lord Haw Haw the Englishman hired by the Nazi's to undermine the morale of British servicemen and civilians with his nightly broadcasts of doom and gloom.
Closer to home SNP parliamentary hopeful Margaret Paterson was given a great ovation from the audience when she was called to second a motion on the platform.

 SNP Fact Sheet
SNPs are also evolutionarily stable --not changing much from generation to generation --making them easier to follow in population studies.
In addition to the pharmacogenomic, diagnostic, and biomedical research implications, SNP maps are helping to identify thousands of additional markers along the genome, thus simplifying navigation of the much larger genome map generated by researchers in the HGP.
SNP data were made available through a consortium Web site at quarterly intervals during the project's first year and at monthly intervals during the second year.

 SNP
Although the SNP only gained 7.4% of the vote in the 1950 General Election and the 1950's saw little improvement in electoral success for the Party, there was evidence that the mood of the Scottish people was changing.
Between 1962 and 1968 the party claimed SNP membership had soared from 2000 to 100,000, and in the 1966 General Election the Party fought its largest ever number of seats with 23 contested, and the Party gained 14.3% of the vote.
The SNP had gained support from all areas of the electorate and took 40% of the Liberal vote, 40% of those who had not voted in 1970 and 44% of first time voters.

 Scotsman.com Election - Scottish National Party
The SNP have always had strong support in rural Scotland with constituencies in Perthshire, Tayside and Aberdeenshire being held in 1997 and 2001.
Additionally, whilst the SNP opposition to the war in Iraq stands them in good stead for attracting the disillusioned Labour vote, there are several other parties equally opposed, such as the Libdems, the SSP and the Greens to choose from.
Unlike the LibDems however there is little need for the SNP to be civil with a Labour party they are both in coalition with and in opposition to, so "Joke McConnell" jibes on billboards are an option for them, as they have shown.

 Key dates for the SNP
The SNP claimed that the oil was Scottish and that the drain in money to London was all but theft of another nation’s capital.
The SNP claimed that the wealth that Scotland would derive from oil would enable the nation to have a successful independent economy that was not dependent on London.
The Scottish Tories had nothing to do with it and the SNP refused to take part as they felt that devolution was not want they wanted which was full independence from Westminster.

 SNP web source   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Besides this, the main use of the human SNP map will be dissecting the contributions of individual genes to diseases that have a common complex, multigene basis.
The prevalence of SNPs allows the use of SNPs to be most useful for disease-associated studies.
In general, the higher the frequency of a SNP allele, the older the mutation that produced it, so high-frequency SNPs largely predate human population diversification, and this information can be used in human evolution studies.

SNPs provide a powerful approach to understanding the connection between genetic variation and its physical manifestation, and as such, are a main focus of the pharmacogenomics arena.
Additionally, this report examines the practice of outsourcing samples to SNP genotyping providers by disclosing respondents’ reasons for outsourcing, factors that contributed to the selection of a particular genotyping service provider and their satisfaction with that provider.
By using this report to understand the actual experiences, needs and preferences of researchers, suppliers of SNP genotyping products and services will be better positioned to refine existing tools to appeal to the diverse needs of their target market and to extend the use of their products and services into additional laboratories.

JOHN Swinney, the SNP leader, made a passionate and deliberate attempt to reverse decades of Nationalist rhetoric yesterday, when he warned his party that independence would not turn Scotland into a "land of milk and honey".
SNP leader John Swinney today accused the Scottish Executive of stashing £400 million of taxpayers' money in "slush funds" which they can dip into when they find themselves in trouble.
JOHN Swinney, the SNP leader, will use his keynote conference address tomorrow to announce a major change in the campaigning approach of his party - effectively ditching the strategy adopted by his predecessor, Alex Salmond, in 1999.

 SNP FAQ
It is expected that SNPs will accelerate the identification of disease genes by allowing researchers to look for associations between a disease and specific differences (SNPs) in a population.
If the SNP is in a gene region, it will be annotated on the appropriate Reference Sequence or UniGene cluster.
A reference SNP ID, or 'rs' ID is an identification tag assigned by NCBI to SNPs that appear to be unique in the database.

Ultimately, SNP technology may lead to the development of "personalized medicine," in which disease prevention strategies and treatments are more closely tailored to an individual's genetic profile.
As it is constructed, the SNP map will be made publicly available to medical researchers worldwide at the same time it becomes available to members of the Consortium, according to Lincoln Stein, MD, PhD, of the bioinformatics program at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, the group responsible for managing the Consortium's SNP database.
The SNP Consortium — an innovative collaboration among industry, the world's largest medical research charity, and several leading academic institutions — is organized as a non-profit entity whose goal is to create and make publicly available a high-quality SNP map of the human genome.

He accused the SNP of failing to hold the Scottish Executive to account and of failing to offer an alternative to Labour-Lib Dem rule.
And he combined this argument with an attack on Nationalist leader John Swinney, claiming the SNP's stance on the Dungavel Immigration and Detention Centre showed it was "totally unfit for government".
Mr McLetchie's attack on the SNP over Dungavel was strongly rebutted by the party's deputy leader.

 Scots Independence Tour - Towards a Better Scotland
It is the SNP's aim to switch the focus of economic debate in Scotland away from how we fare as a regional outpost of the UK, and towards what we could achieve as an independent nation, with real power at home and the influence of a Member State in Europe.
The report costs the policy changes which the SNP are advocating for the first four years of an independent Scottish Parliament, in terms of additional revenue and expenditure compared to present tax and spending flows within the Union.
It would be the SNP's intention to phase in an extra £10 million over four years, as a major step towards Scotland achieving her full potential in the international tourism industry, with the specific target of doubling the number of visitors to Scotland over the planning period.

 Orchid - SNP-IT Technology
Orchid Cellmark's patented SNP method involves a set of biochemical reactions that isolates the precise location of a suspected SNP and then simply and directly determines the identity of the SNP, using an enzyme called DNA polymerase.
Accuracy is essential in SNP scoring, as even a 1% error rate could result in huge numbers of incorrect findings when analyzing large numbers of patient samples.
The SNP analyses produced by the reaction can be "read-out" using a variety of instrument systems, including many already widely used by researchers.

The SNP argues that Scotland should be an independent country, just like others such as Denmark, France, Estonia and Germany.
These countries take it for granted that they can take their own specific approach to fundamental issues such as when we go to war, what our broadcasting policy is, immigration, power generation and others.
A country where the senior citizens have a just and fair pension, a country where our young people are able to stay and work in their country of birth, a country that is welcoming to all regardless of ethnic origin, colour of skin or religion.
