We have added a new feature to ClinVar that allows you to follow a particular variant and be notified if the overall clinical interpretation in ClinVar changes, for example from a pathogenic category to a non-pathogenic one. This service will let you know about changes that may require you to update your analysis reports and contact your patients and ordering physicians. The new feature allows you to follow a variant from the variation page (Figure 1). Simply click the “Follow” button to begin receiving notifications.
Figure 1. A ClinVar variant page (VCV000541155.1) showing the ‘Follow’ button. The text on the button changes to ‘Following’ after you add it to your followed variants. Clicking ‘Following’ presents the option to ‘Unfollow’, which removes the variant from the followed list when clicked.
The action menu (Figure 1) now contains Collections and My Bibliography, allowing you to manage and share groups of citations. After running a search, you will also find a “Create alert” link under the search box that lets you set up automatic My NCBI email updates for your search.

Going forward, we will continue to develop new features leading up to the time when this new version of PubMed will replace the legacy PubMed. As this progresses, we would love to hear what you think about these new additions! Please use the “Feedback” button (available on every page of the new PubMed) to submit your comments, questions, or concerns.
On Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at 12 PM, NCBI staff will present a webinar on the new My Bibliography, a central place to save and share your citations. You can add PubMed citations, create them manually, or upload them from citation managers. In this webinar you will learn how to navigate the new interface, receive a few helpful tips to make your experience easier, get a sneak peek of features under development, and learn how you can help us improve My Bibliography by providing feedback.
Date and time: Wed, Sep 25, 2019 12:00 PM – 12:45 PM EDT

Professors, you’re busy – really busy. You have to develop and teach your courses and laboratory sessions, coordinate your lab’s research efforts, write grants and publications, and stay current on everything related to your teaching and research topics.
NCBI has information that would help most of these efforts – but there are so many interesting records and so little time to organize them for efficient use. Sign up for a free NCBI Account and let us help you organize your important lists!
Figure 1. The My NCBI login page.
Sign up for an NCBI Account – or sign in to your account if you already have one – and:
Store and automate your searches;
Save and manage collections of important records for use in coursework, research projects and federal grants;
Create public lists for students in your courses and your own Faculty Profile;
As a My NCBI account holder, you can invite other individuals to act as your delegate and grant them the ability to view and edit your My Bibliography collection (including Other Citations), as well as the ability to view, edit, and create profiles in your SciENcv.
Inviting a Delegate
The first step is to send a delegate invitation from your NCBI Account Settings page. After you’ve logged in to your NCBI account, click on your username in the top right corner of the screen to access your Account Settings. Then, under the “Delegates” section, click “Add a delegate” and enter the email address for your intended recipient. You can have multiple delegates on your account, and you can control what each delegate has access to from the Delegates section of your Account Settings page.
Acting as a Delegate
If a colleague invites you to become a delegate on their NCBI account, you will receive an email invitation. After you’ve accepted the delegation invitation, you will see your colleague’s Bibliography appear in your Collections list on your My NCBI landing page:
