Proposal SVD-WG009 (conversion)

The proposal suggests simplification of the HGVS nomenclature by discontinuing the use of the variant type “con” to describe conversions (see Conversion). Comments to the proposal, positive or negative, should be addressed to “Varnomen @” (remove the spaces), Subject: SVD-WG009.

According to the HGVS definitiona conversion is a sequence change where, compared to a reference sequence, a range of nucleotides are replaced by a sequence from elsewhere in the genome.
