The National and Ethnic Mutation Databases (NEMDBs) are continuously updated mutation depositories that contain extensive information on the described genetic heterogeneity of an ethnic group or population. Here, we report the construction of the Israeli National Genetic database (Available at: www.goldenhelix.org/israeli; Last accessed: 20 April 2007) to document the sheer genetic heterogeneity found in the Jewish and non‐Jewish populations in Israel. The database is built and maintained… Expand
Ashkenazi Jewish genomic variants: integrating data from the Israeli National Genetic Database and gnomAD
TLDR
Integration of information on mutations among Ashkenazi Jews extracted from the INGD with their population frequency recorded in gnomAD is important for effective straightforward molecular diagnosis as well as for targeted carrier screening either for reproductive decision-making or for implementation of disease-modifying behavior. Expand
The Israeli National Genetic database: a 10-year experience
TLDR
A significant difference in the percentage of pathogenic variants from the Israeli genetic database that were present in ExAC was observed between the Jewish population and the Israeli Arab population, which could serve as a paradigm of successful database curation for other similar resources. Expand
The molecular basis of autosomal recessive diseases among the Arabs and Druze in Israel
TLDR
Molecular data on genetic diseases present in the population have been systematically collected and are available online in the Israeli national genetic database and it is probable that most of these cases represent random events in some cases, but the reason may be a selective advantage to the heterozygotes. Expand
Genetic screening in the Persian Jewish community: A pilot study
TLDR
A carefully planned effort can be delivered to an “increased risk” community if detailed attention is given to planning and organization, however, availability of an effective intervention for those found to be “at-risk” or possibly affected, is essential before embarking. Expand
Indian genetic disease database
TLDR
The IGDD web portal, planned to be made freely available, contains user-friendly interfaces and is expected to be highly useful to the geneticists, clinicians, biologists and patient support groups of various genetic diseases. Expand
ETHNOS: A versatile electronic tool for the development and curation of national genetic databases
TLDR
The features of the ETHNOS software are described, a simple but versatile tool based on a flat-file database that is specifically designed for the development and curation of NEMDBs, allowing for a comprehensive ethnicity-specific documentation of genomic variation. Expand
Locus-Specific and National/Ethnic Mutation Databases: Emerging Tools for Molecular Diagnostics
TLDR
This chapter describes the existing and emerging mutating database types and emphasizes their potential applications in modern medical genetics. Expand
Mutations of a country: a mutation review of single gene disorders in the United Arab Emirates (UAE)
TLDR
The single gene disorders that have been studied at the molecular level in the UAE are reviewed and the mutations found are compiled to form the basis to establish a UAE mutations database and serve as a model for the collection of mutations of a country. Expand
Genetic Counseling Services and Training of Genetic Counselors in Israel: An Overview
TLDR
The history and training of Master level genetic counselors in Israel is summarized and genetic services, coverage and regulations are described. Expand
A Mutation Analysis of the Phenylalanine Hydroxylase (PAH) Gene in the Israeli Population
TLDR
While marked genetic heterogeneity was observed in the Arab and Jewish populations, only one mutation A300S, was frequent in all of the communities, and several of the other frequent mutations were shared by the non‐Ashkenazi Jews and Arabs. Expand
