Data Sharing Guidance

This page provides guidance from ClinGen on sharing variant data with ClinVar, the freely accessible, public archive of variant data.

We recommend that you first review the ClinVar Submission Overview page to familiarize yourself with the submission process and submission template.  The staff at ClinVar is always available to respond to any questions you may have about this information. They can be reached at clinvar@ncbi.nlm.nih.gov.

We encourage interested laboratories to submit data for ALL molecular and cytogenomic array tests it performs, but understand some may choose to submit certain subsets of their data.
