ICPGC Working Group Activities

Panel App Australia – Cerebral Palsy

A crowdsourcing tool to allow panels to be shared, downloaded, viewed and evaluated by the greater scientific and medical community. All ICPGC are welcome to participate in curating genes associated with CP.

Version 1.36 is available here.

ClinGen Gene Curation Expert Panel

This group are reviewing genes marketed for clinical testing for CP. All members of the ICPGC are welcome to join, for more information please see the CP GCEP Home Page.

Phenotype Working Group

The ICPGC CDEs v1 were completed and published in DMCN, 2021. In our next iteration we need to provide comprehensively definitions, semantic annotations as well as continue the inclusion of other global data standards, in particular with conditions that co-occur with CP.

Bioinformatics Working Group

The ICPGC Bioinformatics groups is currently working on ICPGC exome and genome pipeline standards.
