Description A clinician who has discovered a new gene as the cause of a rare disease submits a Connection Application to the Clinical Advisory Committee (CAC). If approved, CAC sends the human gene to the Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) and bioinformatics core, which will attempt to match a new disease gene to as many model organism researchers as possible, based on the genes that model organism researchers have self-declared in the Registry.
