Standards for Genetic Variation


Genetic variation data is an important data type, but consistency across datasets is poor. With the loss of NCBI’s dbSNP for non-human data has increased the challenge. Fortunately, the EBI European Variation Archive EVA does accept non-human data, as is the reasonable long-term repository for variation data. This working group would address coordination and access of genetic variation through the EBI European Variation Archive EVA; establish recommendations, best practices and resources to submit genetic variation to EVA.
