Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) generates overwhelming amounts of data. Clinical and basic researchers are increasingly confronted with the complexity of genomic data. It is therefore of fundamental importance to provide researchers and clinicians with specific trainings on the interpretation of genetic variants and quality standards. The endorsement of the European Society of Human Genetics, and of EuroGentest, has been received.
