CDC/ClinGen collaboration results in a significant new genetic variant resource

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Genetic Testing Reference Material Program (GeT-RM) has partnered with the Clinical Genome Resource (ClinGen) to develop a publicly available list of 546 expert curated pathogenic variants in 84 genes for use in next-generation sequencing (NGS) genetic testing. This list serves as a knowledge resource for designing comprehensive analytical validation studies and creating computer-modulated or simulated reference materials for clinical genomic test development by defining variants that are either major contributors to disease or difficult to detect. Their work is presented in The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics, published by Elsevier.

Genetic testing has evolved from interrogating small sets of known pathogenetic variants in one or a few genes to examining hundreds or thousands of genes simultaneously using NGS. For these large assays, it is logistically difficult (and often impossible) to obtain genomic DNA reference materials containing the full scope of variants and variant types needed to perform a comprehensive validation study.

It can be challenging for laboratories to maintain the expert knowledge to identify representative variants appropriate for inclusion in validation studies to assure analytic and clinical validity. In addition, a comprehensive validation study using traditional reference materials can be costly. The new expert curated variant list will help address these complexities. This is important because well designed and validated clinical assays can provide accurate and reliable results to patients, enabling accurate diagnoses and appropriate treatment decisions.

This was cited by Jim Slade on the WCG/MCM forum. I don't know how relevant it is here, but maybe it is of interest to someone.
