Projects affiliated to DECIPHER can deposit and share patients, variants, and phenotypes to invite collaboration and facilitate diagnosis. Once deposited, you can use DECIPHER to identify and prioritise potential matches, and you can request notifications as soon as new matches arrive.

As well as influencing individual patient outcomes, use of DECIPHER has contributed to over 700 published articles since 2004. It's still free, and you are in control of what data to make public.
