This table compares the current GTR section titles to corresponding heading in various recommendations found in the following literature:

  • ACMG: American College Of Medical Genetics recommendations for standards for interpretation of sequence variations, see entry G17 at [1]
  • CAP: College of American Pathologists - Clinical Laboratory Reports in Molecular Pathology, see at [2]
  • JMD: Journal of Molecular Diagnostics - Clinician Perspectives about Molecular Genetic Testing for Heritable Conditions and Development of a Clinician-Friendly Laboratory Report, see at [3]

Note that GTR titles in parenthesis represnet parent sections.
