Hum Mutat. 2011 May;32(5):537-42. doi: 10.1002/humu.21452. Epub 2011 Mar 8.


CGEN (Clinical GENetics) is a software application built to manage the IT requirements of genetic clinics with the specific focus to collect well-organized and verified data for genetic research. This article describes the functionality of CGEN, the IT requirements for CGEN, and the unique position that CGEN has for clinics who may wish to collaborate data exchange with other clinics or central repositories of genetic data. CGEN was also represented at The Human Variome Project in Paris, 2010, and is a candidate for data collection for this project.
