Improving diagnoses through expert consensus

Genomics England developed PanelApp to allow experts from around the world to share knowledge and insights on gene panels. Think of it like the Wikipedia of genes, with our dedicated team of curators checking every entry and a simple-yet-innovative 'traffic light' system indicating the level of evidence of a gene to cause a certain phenotype or disease.

A valuable resource for the scientific community

PanelApp provides the opportunity to encourage a consensus for which genes have enough evidence to be included on a diagnostic panel for a particular disease.

The aim is to use expertise and knowledge to establish a consensus final ‘green’ diagnostic grade gene panel for each disorder to aid clinical interpretation of genomes.
