VarSome as Human Genomics Community

Posted by Tomas Kucera on Feb 14, 2019 10:56:04 AM
 
As a researcher or medical professional, you may encounter a rare variant which you have never seen before. Collecting information about such a variant may take you a lot of time without any guarantee that you will find what you need. However, if there was another clinician or researcher, anywhere in the world, who has already dealt with the same variant in the past and if there was an easy way to get in touch, well, everything would be much easier. And that's what VarSome as a  Human Genomics Community is all about!
