Hi <mailto:ensembl-dev at ebi.ac.uk>

I don't understand what a VariationSet is in the variation API. One of 
the methods is

$vg = $vga->fetch_by_name('Phenotype-associated variations');

Is the parameter 'Phenotype-associated variations' from a list of 
built-in parameter values so that ensembl will go away and retrieve all 
variations associated with a phenotype. If so, what are the other 
allowable parameter values?

Alternatively this method could retrieve a set of variations that the 
user has somehow created and called 'Phenotype-associated variations' 
themselves (e.g. by uploading the variations into a personal data area 

Many thanks
