Notes An NCL gene variant database.
Establishment of this gene variant database (LSDB) was supported by the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement No 200754 - the GEN2PHEN project.
This database was initially part of the Finnish Disease Resource (FinDis; Polvi et al: Hum Mutat. 2013: 34: 1458-66). We gratefully acknowledge the support of Juha Muilu acting as curator until 2015.
Date created October 11, 2012
