image of black caviar with one orange egg on left side. Text reads 'Kaviar. Known variants search tool. A simple tool for answering a specific question: WHat variants have been reported for a range of genomic locations'.

Kaviar is a compilation of SNVs, indels, and complex variants observed in humans, designed to facilitate testing for the novelty and frequency of observed variants.


Caution: variant novelty need not imply functional or clinical relevance. Conversely, known variants may have unknown functional implications. In some cases, even the reference form may be the detrimental variant.
