Stockmayer Max Tishler Given the rapid identification of variants provided by next-generation sequencing, as of JanuaryOMIM applies the following criteria for establishing a gene-phenotype relationship: Mendelian Inheritance in Man. Criteria considered for inclusion are the first mutation to be discovered, high population frequency, distinctive phenotype, historic significance, unusual mechanism of mutation, unusual pathogenetic mechanism or distinctive inheritance e.
