Database Description

The DGVa team accepts direct submissions from researchers and also curates data from the published literature. As part of a regular exchange, DGVa data is sent to its partner archive, dbVar (hosted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information) and reciprocally, dbVar sends data to DGVa. Data can be accessed in a number of ways: GVF files, browserd in Ensembl or dowloaded from BioMart. DGVa is the primary supplier of data to the Database of Genomic Variants (DGV), hosted by the The Centre for Applied Genomics in Toronto, Canada. DGV provides extra curation and interpretation services and maintains the most comprehensive resource for genomic structural variation in humans.
