Identifying and definitional attributes
|Metadata item type:||Value Domain|
|Registration status:||Health, Standard 08/05/2014|
|Definition:||The gene symbol representing the genetic or molecular abnormalities detected in a person, other than those already specified.|
|Maximum character length:||20|
Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
Record the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC) assigned, unique gene symbol (or gene abbreviation, short gene name) corresponding to each genetic or molecular abnormality detected. The symbol is available from their curated online repository at http://www.genenames.org.
Gene symbols are designated by upper-case Latin letters or by a combination of upper-case letters and Arabic numerals, with the exception of the # symbol. They do not contain punctuation except for the HLA, immunoglobulin and T cell receptor gene symbols, which may be hyphenated. Generally, gene symbols will be no longer than six characters.
