Since release 37 of January 2021: 2307 entries were created and 31156 entries were updated

2) Changes in the CC "Sequence variation" lines

These lines have been completely structured, contains cross-references to HGNC, MGI, RGD, UniProtKB and to VGNC to indicate the variation target gene and to ClinVar or dbSNP when the variation is described in one of these resources.

In addition the "Sequence variation" topic now has 4 subtopics:

  1. Gene amplification
  2. Gene deletion
  3. Gene fusion
  4. Mutation


Sequence variation: Gene amplification; Resource_abbrev; %s; Gene_name; Duplication|Triplication; Zygosity=Zyg_value [; Note=Free_text] (Sources).
Sequence variation: Gene deletion; Resource_abbrev; %s; Gene_name; Zygosity=Zyg_value [; Note=Free_text] (Sources). 
Sequence variation: Gene fusion; Resource_abbrev; %s; Gene_name + Resource_abbrev; %s; Gene_name; Names(s)=Name1[, Name2][, NameX] [; Note=Free_text] (Sources).
Sequence variation: Mutation; Resource_abbrev; %s; Gene_name; Mutation_type; Mutation_description [; ClinVar=%s|dbSNP=%s]; Zygosity=Zyg_value [; Note=Free_text] (Sources).


Resource_abbrev is one of: HGNC|MGI|RGD|UniProtKB|VGNC
Mutation_type is one of: Simple|Simple_corrected|Simple_edited|Repeat_expansion|Repeat_expansion_corrected|Unexplicit|Unexplicit_corrected|None_reported
Mutation_description is: the description of the mutation using, when possible the HGVS nomenclature.
Zyg_value is one of: Hemizygous|Heteroplasmic|Heterozygous|Homoplasmic|Homozygous|Mosaic|Unspecified|-

Sequence variation: Mutation; MGI; MGI:1913975; Lrrk2; Simple_edited; p.Thr1348Asn (c.4043A>C); Zygosity=Homozygous; Note=By ZFN (ATCC).
Sequence variation: Mutation; HGNC; 28337; C9orf72; Repeat_expansion; c.-45+163GGGGCC[>24] (GGGGCC repeat expansion); ClinVar=VCV000031151; Zygosity=Unspecified (PubMed=24704492).

Note that in this release the XML format file has not yet been modified to accomodate these changes and the sequence variation information is in the structured string format described above. We will make the changes to the XML format for the next release.

3) Changes in the DR lines

Cross-references were added to the PerkinElmer cell line collection. Up to now we provided web links to the product description pages but having found a way to use the PerkinElmer catalog number we have converted these links to cross-references.

Example: DR PerkinElmer; BW119262
