LOVD 3.0 News

LOVD 3.0 build 21 released Ivo Fokkema, 2018-03-14
Today, LOVD 3.0 build 21 has been released.
New features implemented, amongst others: Many improvements to the submission API (Built scheduling interface for importing files submitted through the API; Keep the JSON file for each API submission; Imports can be run manually or run automatically); The concluded variant effect is renamed to "by curator"; The Phenotype/Additional column will now be added to the Individuals data listing, if it's available; The variant effect fields for the genomic level will now only show on the data entry form, now when there is more than one transcript associated with the variant, or when there is a conflict between the variant effect on the genomic and transcript level; Rewrote communication with Mutalyzer to use a more stable method.
Bugs fixed, amongst others: Some fixes to the submission API (Fixed bug; 3'UTR variants were not accepted; Fixed bug; API submissions had their screenings set to "no variants found"); Fixed bug; The Owner field didn't always show a tooltip in data listings; Fixed bug; Fields edited through the Find & Replace feature will now actually be checked, and some other minor changes; Updated the ORCID API from v.1.2 to v.2.1; users could no longer register with their ORCID; Fixed bug; The "variants affecting transcripts" view didn't show all transcripts associated with each variant, but only each gene.
Closes #127, #149, #214, #270, #305, #307, #313, #327 and #340.

Introducing a search interface for variants in any public LOVD Ivo Fokkema, 2017-12-15
Looking for an easy way to find out whether there is an LOVD instance which has information concerning a certain variant?
Use our new search interface!
All LOVDs registered to our website are included in this search function. It currently only works for genomic locations, but we'll extend it to also include transcript locations soon. We'd love to get your feedback, let us know what you think of it!
