In order to make sense of the genome data, a detailed set of clinical data needs to be collected about the patient’s observed features and symptoms (their phenotype). For each approved disease in the project, a form asking about the presence or absence of a specified set of Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) terms is requested from clinicians. HPO terms are a standardised way of describing clinical features and symptoms for clinicians.

  • Clinicians referring patients will be contacted to provide phenotypic information once the patient has consented to join the project.


  • A phenotyping form can be submitted at the point of patient referral by emailing to Please ensure that information is sent securely according to NHS information governance guidelines.

Below are downloadable phenotyping forms for each approved condition included in the project.
