The quality and the precision of a final diagnosis do not consist solely of correct variant classification and clinical interpretation. Diagnosis begins at the preanalytical level, and all subsequent interpretation can produce either a negative or a positive effect, depending on the quality of the…
CentoMD® is a browser-based tool that enables access to a high-quality repository of genetic, biochemical and human phenotype ontology (HPO)-based clinical information. All patients provided informed consent before inclusion in the DB.
A study was conducted using whole exome sequencing (WES) to identify underlying pathogenic variants, or likely pathogenic variants, in 1,000 diagnostic cases from 54 different countries. Patients selected displayed a wide variety in the number, nature and severity of symptoms. Clinical information…
"The ability to discover genetic variants in a patient runs far ahead of the ability to interpret them. Databases with accurate descriptions of the causal relationship between the variants and the phenotype are valuable since these are critical tools in clinical genetic diagnostics. Here, we…
