About the BVdb

The Bibliome Variant Database (BVdb) is an automatically populated collection of genetic variants mined from open access literature. The 100 most recently published references are displayed for each variant.

Users can search the database using HGNC nomenclature, rsIDs, as well as by genomic position.

The BVdb is designed to facilitate variant curaiton and classification. Identifying references describing specific genetic variants is a time consuming and often frustrating process. Use of the BVdb can enable faster and more efficient interpretation of genetic variants by reducing the time required to gather references describing a variant of interest.
