ENIGMA consortium

ENIGMA is an international consortium of investigators focused on

  • determining the clinical significance of sequence variants in BRCA1, BRCA2 and other known or suspected breast cancer genes,
  • to provide this expert opinion to global database and classification initiatives, and
  • to explore optimal avenues of communication of such information at the provider and patient level.

An ENIGMA member is currently defined as a researcher or research group (consortium) who is willing to work collaboratively towards classification of variants and contribute data from families with unclassified sequence variants, as required to aid in the variant classification projects of ENIGMA and/or conduct statistical analysis or laboratory-based assays aimed at classification of variants within a working group framework.
