A top panel shows information specific to the variant. Read more about the top panel in this help page.

The table shows the sources of data supporting this variant.

Evidence table

Structural variants are given an esv###### or nsv###### ID. These are regions of the genome where structural variation has been demonstrated.

Supporting structural variants are given essv###### or nssv###### IDs. They are studies where structural variation has been identified. One structural variant can have multiple supporting structural variants associated with it, if the same region has been identified in many samples. The table shows all the supporting structural variants that have been associated with the selected structural variants.

IDs are prefixed with e or n (ie essv###### or nssv######), which indicate the source of the data. IDs prefixed with e mean that the study is curated by DGVa, whilst n indicates studies curated by dbVar.

DGVa (the Database of Genomic Variation Archive) is a database of variant data based at the EBI. DGVa shares data with dbVar (database of Variation) at NCBI, so this data will be included in the structural variants Ensembl imports from DGVa. Learn about data in DGVa in the DGVa Quicktour.
