White paper on assigning LOE to clinical annotations now published

A previous blog post described our new quantitative system for assigning a level of evidence (LOE) to clinical annotations. We are pleased to announce that our white paper about the system has now been published in Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics and is available on the PharmGKB website.

The paper details how each piece of evidence linked to a clinical annotation is scored by an algorithm and how the total score of a clinical annotation is translated into a LOE. Use of this system makes the assignment of LOE to be more consistent across clinical annotations and allows users to better understand why a certain LOE has been assigned to a particular clinical annotation.

Further information about scoring of variant annotations and clinical annotations as well as our LOE system can be found on our website.
