With the arrival of a new year, we are pleased to offer a new service to the genetics and clinical community. HUM-MOLGEN has developed a molecular diagnostic registry database (SOM-MUT) to offer on-line searches for laboratoriess offering molecular diagnostic tests for somatic mutations/alterations. This service is complementary and cross-linked to, but independent from, Helix (http://www.hslib.washington.edu/helix/), the registry for laboratories offering germ line mutations.
Please visit the general page of SOM-MUT (http://opus.cilea.it/som-mut/); if you or your laboratory perform tests and are located in Europe or North America, take a moment to visit the data entry form ("New Lab Adhesion") and register the laboratory and the tests offered. If you experience problems in the registration process, please contact dr. Nenad Blau at email@example.com.
Finally we ask that you share this information with others at your institution, especially to those people who would be interested in searching the database and/or registering their laboratory and tests.
