What is an LRG?

LRG stands for Locus Reference Genomic. An LRG is a fixed sequence, independent of the genome, specifically created for the diagnostic community to record DNA sequence variation on a fixed framework.

Sequence variants in LSDBs (Locus Specific Databases) are reported using LRG sequences. For more information, please see the LRG project page.
