NCBI has three relatively new online resources for information about genetic tests, genetic conditions, and genetic variations:
- The Genetic Testing Registry, or GTR – a registry of genetic tests for heritable and somatic changes in humans
- MedGen – a medical genetics portal that focuses on information about medical conditions with a genetic component
- ClinVar – an archival database that contains reported assertions about the relationship between genetic variations and phenotypes
This blog will provide a very brief overview of the three resources by outlining some of their content features. For a more thorough introduction to the three resources, including the types of information available in each and how to use them, we recommend viewing this approximately hour-long webinar that we conducted in June 2014.
