Variant and patient data

Editing patient data

Patient data can be edited by authorized users that have access to the gene(s) containing the patient's variant(s) (appointed curator, manager or the database administrator) or, if the "my submissions" setting has been enabled, also the submitter owning the patient can edit it's information. However, if the patient has variants in more than one gene, curator-level users can only edit the patient if they are appointed to all of the patient's genes.

To edit the patient information, go through any of the available variant listings and find the patient you're looking for. Click the patient or one of the connected variants to go to the detailed view. Below the patient data table, click the "Edit patient" link. The form to edit a patient is similar to the patient submission form.
In case a submitter edits the patient information, the curator(s) connected to the patient's variant's gene(s) will be notified of the changes. However, if nothing is changed by the submitter, nothing is updated in the database and the curators are not notified.
