SequenceConsensusSequenceBlock[edit | edit source]

Describes consensus sequence block used in HLA typing report.

This profile was created to attempt to satisfy the requirements for a specific use case: HLA genotyping by NGS methods. It is based on the principles of the Minimum Information for ReportIng Next generation sequence Genotyping (MIRING) as described in Hum Immunol. 2015 Dec;76(12):954-62. doi: 10.1016/j.humimm.2015.09.011. Epub 2015 Sep 25. A technical implementation of MIRING was developed in the Histomimmungenetics Markup Language (HML) and published in Hum Immunol. 2015 Dec;76(12):963-74. doi: 10.1016/j.humimm.2015.08.001. Epub 2015 Aug 28. The schema for HML may be found in

We are using MIRING and HML to inform how FHIR profile(s) may be developed. In this case, a Consensus Sequence is composed of one or more Consensus Sequence Blocks. Metadata about each block is important, but not yet captured in the Sequence Resource, or other profiles. These include: phase set, expected copy number, block continuity, and strand. This profile extends the Sequence Resource to add these elements.

Profiled Resource(s)[edit | edit source]

Constraints to be Applied[edit | edit source]

The following constraints are applied to the Sequence resource as necessary:

  • Constrain the cardinality of the data elements within the resource.
  • Constrain the mustSupport attribute of the data elements within the resource.
  • Define searchParameters as necessary for the resource.
  • Constrain vocabularies for the resources as applicable.

Extensions to be Applied[edit | edit source]

The following extensions are applied to the Sequence resource as appropriate:

  • Clinical genomics specific extensions.
