The National/Ethnic Genetic Databases are mutation depositories, recording extensive information over the described genetic heterogeneity of an ethnic group or population. Until now, there are several National/Ethnic Genetic databases, many of which are developed using the ETHNOS software, an off-the-shelf bioinformatics suite developed in 2003 by the Golden Helix Institute of Biomedical Research to facilitate development and curation of National/Ethnic Genetic and Mutation frequency databases. These databases can be exploited as a central repository for the genetic services in any given country. Since 2012, the ETHNOS software has been upgraded with new functionalities and currently several National/Ethnic Mutation Databases are either being migrated to the new software or being developed.
