Create a MyVariants database

You can create a MyVariants database when you create an analysis workflow. A MyVariants database can be used research projects for various reasons. For example, separate databases can be useful for projects with interpretations of genomic variants that appear to conflict. If a breast cancer study includes specific gene mutations that are suspected to cause tumors, and a lung cancer study includes the same mutations that are not suspected to cause tumors, two MyVariants databases can be used.
