NCBI Workshops

Introducing 3 NCBI Resources to Navigate Testing for Disease Linked Variants: MedGen, GTR and ClinVarv

Presenter: Brandi Kattman, NCBI

Date: June 18, 2014


This online presentation from the National Center for Biotechnology Information will take you through the lifecycle of genetic testing and illustrate several resources that can help you with patient preparation, the selection and ordering of appropriate genetic tests, and finally, with interpretation of test results. In this session, you will learn how to navigate several free, online programs, including MedGen, which provides information on conditions with a genetic component, the NIH Genetic Testing Registry (GTR) for reviewing available genetic tests and ClinVar, which holds information on medically relevant variation.

These workshops were presented by Dr. Peter Cooper from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) on October 11th and 12th, 2012 at the Univ. of Michigan Taubman Health Sciences Library.
