Country Activities

The Human Variome Project tracks activity around genetics, genomics and public health in selected countries around the world, please email for further details.

Gene/Disease Specific Databases

The Human Variome Project reccommends the use of the list of gene/disease specific databases maintained by the LOVD group at the Leiden University Medical Centre.

Ethical, Legal and Social Issues Resources

The Human Variome Project maintains a list of relevant resources on the range of ethical, social and legal issues that relate to the storage and sharing of human variant data and information.

Genetics and Genomics Journals

The Human Variome Project believes that all sequence variants reported in journal articles should not only be fully and accurately described within the articles that report them, but also deposited into the appropriate gene/disease specific databases prior to publication. We track the journals that include directives on these topics in their author instructions.
