Members are invited to review and comment on this important paper. It will form the basis of clear guidance to Variant database administrators, database curators as well as submitters and users. We all know that improving the utility of variant databases is a continuous process. To date, databases have been developed in the absence of practical guidance which has created  a lot of inconsistencies. HVP members have thought that it is timely to provide some clear guidance and practical tools to create greater consistency across the globe.

This paper is the result of the work of many HVP members and we thank them very much – in particular the two co-authors – Peter Taschner and Martina Witsch-Baumgartner  



Deadline for comments – Monday 17 December 2018 – comments to Helen Robinson – hmro@unimelb.edu.au
