HGMD remains the largest, most consulted resource for finding disease-causing mutations. Founded and maintained by the Institute of Medical Genetics at Cardiff University in 1999, the database contains over 260,000 manually curated mutation reports from over 2,600 peer-reviewed journals.
“Our experience of using QIAGEN’s HGMD for the 100,000 Genomes Project guided our decision to continue to rely upon this industry-leading resource.”
Augusto Rendon, Director of Bioinformatics and Genomics England
