Helping uncover links between genetics and disease
Color contributes anonymized variants to public databases to uncover links between genetics and disease. ClinVar is a free, publicly accessible database managed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). It provides a centralized resource to collect information on genetic variants so that researchers can uncover more links between genetics and disease, thereby advancing medicine.
To support this worthwhile endeavor, Color anonymizes genetic variants that are identified and adds them to ClinVar, and potentially other similar public databases in the future. This is not an external research study, but rather a database that is used to uncover more links between genetics and disease. No personal information about you is provided in conjunction with the variant.
