Clinical Domains

One specific goal of ClinGen is to develop teams of experts in different clinical domains to evaluate the clinical validity of gene-disease relationships and pathogenicity of individual genetic variants. These clinical domain working groups consist of expert clinicians, clinical laboratory diagnosticians, and researchers who will enlist representatives from community-organized efforts to implement standardized protocols for gene or sequence variant specific annotations of genes related to the specific disease domain.
