Variant Interpretation:
What is the protocol for interpreting a variation as a VUS? Help
1-Previously reported or identified in our lab 2-Reported in controls (from our lab, dbSNP, ENSEMBL, NHLBI GO ESP) 3-Functional studies 4-Variant affecting the same domain/close variants 5-Bioinformatics tools

Are family members with defined clinical status recruited to assess significance of VUS without charge? Help

Will the lab re-contact the ordering physician if variant interpretation changes? Help
Yes. We use to inform about any relevant update by e-mail. The update is always includes a new report made for a carrier relative.
