We are excited to announce the release of NephVS, the Nephrotic Variant Server. The goal NephVS is to create a database composed of aggregated short-read sequencing and array-based genotype data from research participants with nephrotic syndrome and other glomerular disease. By sharing summary genetic data from these patients, we aim to aid the broader scientific community in their efforts to discover the genetic underpinnings of these conditions. We believe that the power of NephVS for discovery and characterization will be greatly strengthened as additional variant summary data are added from independent patients with nephrotic syndrome and other glomerular diseases. Investigators wishing to discuss collaborating with us on this server should email us

The initial genetic datasets in NephVS were generated from 322 participants in the Nephrotic Syndrome Study Network (NEPTUNE).
