Definition

HGVS nomenclatures are the guidelines for mutation nomenclature made by the Human Genome Variation Society.

HGVS nomenclature can be used with the HL7 coded data type (code data type that accepts expression data, or a coded expression data type). This coded data type should be able to distinguish expressions in HGVS nomenclature from coded concepts. For example, in the HL7 messages specified according to the HL7 V2 Clinical Genomics Fully LOINC-Qualified Genetic Variation Model, HGVS nomenclature can be used to as the observation values for DNA sequence variations. For example, OBX|1|CWE|48004-6^DNA Sequence Variation^LN||c.1129C>T^^HGVS|
