LOVD v.3.0 - Leiden Open Variation Database
Online gene-centered collection and display of DNA variants
Leiden Open Variation Database 3.0
LOVD stands for Leiden Open (source) Variation Database.
LOVD's purpose : To provide a flexible, freely available tool for genomic variant and phenotype collection, display and curation.
LOVD allows both patient-centered and gene-centered views.
LOVD is open source, released under the GPL license, and is actively being improved.
On the server in Leiden, LOVD offers free hosting and support of LOVD-powered gene variant databases.
To maintain a high quality of the data stored, LOVD connects with various resources, like HGNC, NCBI, EBI and Mutalyzer.
LOVD 3.0 is the successor of LOVD 2.0. Do you want to know more about the changes between LOVD 2.0 and 3.0?
