Objective
Medical Genomics Japan Variant Database (MGeND) aims to provide the integrated information of genomic variations and clinical characteristics, and to improve clinical interpretation by cross-sectional studies on “Cancer”, “Rare/Intractable disease”, “Infectious Disease”, “Dementia” and “Hearing loss”. This database contains genetic variations and their frequencies with supporting evidence and clinical information that have been provided from research institutions and cooperation hospitals, which were selected for a program for an Integrated Database of Clinical and Genomic Information supported by Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED). The list of research institutions and hospitals providing data is available.
* Currently, we are only accepting submissions from research institutions selected for this program.
Interpretation
The curation provided on MGeND is performed by collaborating institutions who submit variants and their curation results. MGeND does not validate the interpretation for a variant or review criteria and evidence for interpretation used by submitters.

In the case of disagreement for interpretations by submitters, MGeND does not determine which is correct, and provides the interpretation provided by each submitter.
