Deadline for comments - Friday 30th July- comments to VarNomen@HGVS.org">VarNomen@HGVS.org

 
Thank you
On behalf of the Sequence Variant Description Working Group,
Johan den Dunnen (chair)
 


HGVS nomenclature Q&A sessions have started!
 
On June 22, we started an experiment, an online HGVS nomenclature session. We thank those who dared to attend the first session; there is always the danger of technical issues. But not this time, everything went smoothly. We had a mix of experienced users and nomenclature beginners who enjoyed the chance to practice and discuss relevant nomenclature issues.
 
The session started with a brief welcome from Johan den Dunnen, chair of the HGVS nomenclature committee. Next, were a series of prepared questions for the participants to answer using the DirectPoll system. Participants were able to see each other’s answers anonymously. After each question, the answers were revealed and explained. Was it easy? Certainly not. One question in particular was answered incorrectly by all, even from the experienced users of the group. But this is why we wanted to hold these sessions, giving people a chance to practice and discuss in a safe environment. After the prepared questions, there was time for participants to ask specific questions directly.
 
For those interested to give it a try, the Q&A session is available using Socrative, classroom HGVSonline (https://api.socrative.com/rc/ibPQGW).
 
 
Our next session will take place on Tuesday 24th August, at 3pm UTC. We have alternated the timings of each session to accommodate all time zones. For your time zone, please click here
 
To register for the next session, please click here. You can also see this event listed on the Human Genome Organisation’s(HUGO) Facebook page. We record the meeting for those not able to join. 
 
 
The questions from the Q&A session will be taken from those we receive daily and be a mix of simple and more complex cases. The idea is that you train yourself and learn HGVS nomenclature by applying the recommendations. For those not able to participate, the questions will be available afterwards using the Socrative platform (www.Socrative.com, classroom to be announced).  For the 'questions from participants' session, everybody is encouraged to send questions to VarNomen@HGVS.org so we can prepare. Of course, we will also allow you to ask questions 'live'.
 
 
If you have any comments, suggestions or questions you would like answered for these sessions, please let us know. 
 
Interested to support the HGVS nomenclature work? Please consider sponsoring one of the bi-monthly meetings. For details, please contact amy@variome.org">amy@variome.org. Of course, we will acknowledge sponsorship in advertisement and during the meeting.
 
 

 

UNESCO Online Database Training Course

Financially supported by a grant from UNESCO, Global Variome is organising an "Online training course in curation of human gene/disease databases". Interested students from all over the world applied earlier this year. A Global Variome committee has now selected the 16 participants that are allowed to enter the course. Selected participants come from 12 different countries: Argentina, Cameroon, Egypt, Ethiopia, India, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, Romania, Senegal, Turkey and South Africa.
 
The online training sessions will be held on Mondays over the next few months. To accommodate the 13-hour time difference between the participant's home countries, there will be alternating morning and afternoon sessions (based on UTC). Sessions will be recorded and made available for the participants who are unable to join. Between sessions participants will have to complete specific tasks focussing on a gene/disease they have selected. At the end of the course the participants will be curator for one of the genes in the "Global Variome shared LOVD" (http://databases.lovd.nl/shared">http://databases.lovd.nl/shared). The first session will start July 19, 8 am (UTC).

 
SVD-WG: thank you Donna Maglott!

Donna MaglottThe HGVS nomenclature committee, the Sequence Variant Description working group (SVD-WG), is a group of experts guarding the nomenclature recommendations. The committee currently exists of eight members and three observers (representing HGVS, GV/HVP and HUGO). Until now, membership of the committee has been assigned on an ad-hoc basis. The plan is to make membership of the HGVS nomenclature committee a more open process where candidates apply for membership and committee members serve a specified term time. The plan is to start this process
later in the year, under the umbrella of the new HUGO, where the three organisations supporting the HGVS nomenclature have started to collaborate more closely.
 
Donna Maglott (NCBI) has recently decided to step down as a member of the SVD-WG. Donna will be replaced by Terence Murphy (NCBI). From the start, Donna has been a very active and responsive member of the SVD-WG. Her input, expertise, commitment to standards, spirit of collaboration and the discussions within the committee have always been appreciated. Donna made essential contributions to the HGVS nomenclature recommendations as they are now. These recommendations are not perfect, they will probably never be, but they are of very high quality, serve a need and this is why they are applied as THE standard world-wide, especially in a diagnostic setting. Donna can be proud on having played an essential role towards this achievement.
 
Donna, on behalf of the SVD-WG, thank you very much, enjoy your well-deserved retirement!

BRCA Exchange is thrilled to announce that gnomAD 3.1 will be part of our next release!   We have integrated the gnomAD 3.1 non-cancer subset, which contains whole-genome data from more than 74,023 ethnically-diverse samples, and increases the BRCA Exchange variant count by 25,406 BRCA variants to 65,822 variants altogether!  Moreover, this globally-diverse population dataset is a rich source of information for variant interpretation.  We are currently working with the ENIGMA and ClinGen consortia to leverage these data for variant interpretation, and anticipate that they will lead to the expert curation of tens of thousands of unclassified BRCA variants. 
 
 

InSiGHT awarded funding from the NIH through ClinGen/ClinVar to support the Variant Interpretation Committee around the world, which is now the ClinGen Variant Classification Expert Panel (VCEP) for Colorectal Cancer & Polyposis, so covering MMR, APC, MUTYH, POLD1/E, & hamartomatous genes.

 
The InSiGHT DNA Database Governance Committee has transitioned, with new members Ian Frayling and Gabriel Capella (both InSiGHT Councillors), Marc Greenblatt, Stefan Aretz (each InSIGHT members). Rolf Sijmons continues as a member. Finlay Macrae is the Councillor responsible ex officio and JohnPaul Plazzer the overall curator of the databases.  We are grateful for the wise council of Muarizio Genuardi and Mike Woods who have retired from their roles as members of this committee.
 
 InSiGHT's Variant Interpretation Committee has morphed into, and with, ClinGen as the ClinGen InSiGHT Variant Curation Expert Panel (VCEP). There are several subVCEPs within this, covering the genes of major interest in hereditary colorectal cancer: the mismatch repair genes, APC, MUTYH, STK11, BMPR1A, SMAD4, POLE, and POLD1. The MMR InSIGHT VCEP is well established and accepted by ClinGen for its work in curation of the MMR genes. The invitation from NIH to support the curation of the less developed genes (with respect to curation) was addressed by InSiGHT in a proposal lead by InSiGHT members Marc Greenblatt and Matt Ferber. This covered all the non MMR genes listed above and of interest to InSIGHT. It was successful!
 
 The grant will cover work by John Paul Plazzer, other new biocurators, and administration. The curation will be rolled out progressively. Already there are regular fortnightly meetings being held relating to APC, through the chairmanship of Stefan Aretz (Germany) and supported by Deb Ritter in USA.  Elke Holinski Feder remains chair of the MMR VCEP, supported by Andreas Laner in Munich which meets regularly also.  Addressing discordant pathogenicity assertions as registered on the ClinVar (USA NIH) database is a high priority and the challenges of applying the ACMG framework for curation of genes to the specific genes under attention, are major components of ongoing work.
 
Special recognition of medical and genomic health students Lachlan O'Connor, Matt Daly, Sherry Yin, Varun Kaushik and Marissa Rose has been instituted by InSiGHT Council. Sherry continues as an active biocurator for APC variants.

GV Newsletter - February 2021

 


As you know back in 2016, and after the death of Dick Cotton, we moved the HVP office from Melbourne and formed a UK charity under the name Global Variome. For the last 18 months we have been in talks with HUGO over a potential merger between HVP, HUGO and HGVS. I am pleased to tell you that we are in the final stages and are planning to pilot the new merged organisation over the next year.  

As a member of HVP, this merger should cause little disruption to the great work you are doing.

With this new merger, we plan to combine our HVP committees; for those interested in maintaining their membership with the Human Variome Project, we hope that you will join this new group. Our goal is the same; to maintain an international network of individuals and industry to ensure that all genetic variation information can be collected, curated, interpreted and shared for the benefit of human health. 

We will operate under the collective membership of HUGO. Members will be invited to associate with HVP and/or HGVS, each of which will have dedicated committees within the structure and have seats on the executive board. We will have a dedicated section in the Human Genome Meeting.  The Global Variome will retain its separate identity as an associate NGO of UNESCO and will facilitate educational activities there.  

We will share further details as they become available.  If you have questions please contact us via email to amy@variome.org

The Community Consultation call for proposal SVD-WG008 (RefSeq)
 has been open since 20th July and will close on Monday 30th September 2019. The proposal suggests to extend the HGVS recommendations by specifying what sequences can be used as a reference sequence. See http://varnomen.hgvs.org/bg-material/consultation/svd-wg008/.
 
A sequence variant is defined in the context of a reference sequence which must be referred to by means of a unique sequence identifier. Because a reference sequence defines the numbering system and default state of a sequence (e.g. coding transcript, non-coding transcript), reference sequences have to follow specific requirements which seem "obvious" but were not yet defined. This proposal lists all the essential requirements.
 
Whether your opinion is positive or negative, we would appreciate your honest opinion. Please email any comments or suggestions to Varnomen@variome.org with the Subject: SVD-WG008.

Meeting report: the 2019 Human Genome Meeting (HGM2019) of the Human Genome Organization (HUGO) was held in Seoul, Korea, from 24 to 26 April 2019, at Ewha Woman’s University.
 

 




Describing exon deletions/duplications
 
During the last "Variant Effect Prediction Training Course" (May 29-31, Moscow, Russia) the importance of correctly describing the variants detected using HGVS nomenclature was discussed extensively. One of the examples covered was the description of MLPA-detected deletions/duplications, many struggle with this. During the course the "Reading Frame Checker", offered per gene by the "Global Variome shared LOVD" (https://databases.lovd.nl/shared/), was pointed out as a useful support tool. The reading frame checker can be used to check the predicted consequences of a deletion or duplication of one or more exons being "in frame" or "out of frame". The reading frame checker also gave exon-based variant descriptions but these unfortunately did not follow HGVS recommendations. Since modification according to the developer was "simple" and modification should not take "more than a month" the LOVD-team left with the promise to modify the tool. Modification has now been completed and the GVsharedLOVD can be used to generate HGVS compliant exon deletion/duplication variant description like c.(93+1_94-1)_(649+1_650-1)del.
 

 


The BRCA Challenge and ENIGMA consortia are pleased to announce the publication of "Assessment of blind predictions of the clinical significance of BRCA1 and BRCA2 variants", Hum Mutat. 2019 Jul 11. This paper reports on the results of the CAGI5 ENIGMA challenge for predicting the clinical significance of BRCA variants.  In this challenge, six teams predicted the clinical significance of 326 BRCA variants, which had recently been interpreted by ENIGMA but for which the interpretations were not yet published.  The six teams submitted predictions from fourteen methods, which were then assessed through comparison with the unpublished interpretation.  The best performance was achieved by the LEAP methods by Color Genomics.  These methods were able to successfully leverage private information, including an internal database of genetic testing results and a subscription to HGMD.  While the results of this experiment yielded many lessons for the scientific community, the biggest lesson is that there is still private information that is valuable in variant interpretation.  To the extent that such information can be made public, science will benefit, as will genetic testing patients by extension.
