Before you can enter variant or patient data, you'll need to create at least one gene in LOVD. Through the setup area, you can create, edit and delete genes. Curators can also edit the genes after they've been created. Emptying genes (removing all associated variant and patient data) and managing it's variants is done through the configuration area.
