Database of Genomic Structural Variation (dbVar)
Description:

The Database of Genomic Structural Variation, or dbVar, is an aid in understanding the genetics of health and disease. It helps scientists understand how differences in DNA contribute to human health and disease.

The database tracks large-scale variations in DNA discovered in healthy individuals as well as those affected with disorders such as autism and cancer. Additionally, dbVar collects data on a diverse array of organisms, including agriculturally important plants and livestock. The database was developed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a division of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at NIH.  FAQ
