Submitters are often clinicians collecting patient and variant information and willing to share this information with others. LOVD allows users to register themselves as submitters which allows them to submit new variant and patient data to the database. Depending on the LOVD system settings, submitters are also able to edit the data they have submitted previously.
The public list of submitters, available from the Submitters tab, automatically shows all submitters in the database, sorted on country and city.
