Variant Curation Standard Operating Procedure, Version 1
Detailed documentation outlining the variant curation process.
2015 ACMG/AMP Sequence Variant Interpretation Guidelines
The guidelines are freely available through PubMed Commons.
Videos describing how to use the ClinGen Allele Registry, as well as an overview of searching the literature for sequence variant evidence, including tips and tricks on effective use of variant nomenclature in your search, where to look and common literature search speed bumps, and how to overcome them.
Live VCI Training
Attend a live Variant Curation Interface (VCI) training to learn more about how to enter information for variant curations. The ClinGen Community Curation Group will contact you regarding this training, once you have either emailed firstname.lastname@example.org or filled out the volunteer survey: http://bit.ly/clingenvolunteersurvey (Please use this option if you would like to volunteer to curate with ClinGen).
Attestation & Group Assignment
Once you have read through all of the information and attended a live VCI training session, you will be sent an attestation form to fill out. Once your attestation form is complete, the ClinGen Community Curation Group will contact you with your group assignment.
VCEP-specific ClinGen Variant Curation Training, Level 2
Level 2 variant curation training aims to educate the biocurator on the specific ACMG/AMP guideline specifications and variant assessment procedures outlined by their assigned variant curation expert panel (VCEP).
These OPTIONAL items include a video tutorial by Dr. Steven Harrison on "Variant Interpretation and the ClinGen Curation Interface Tool" and the Variant Curation Interface Help Document.
