SEQUENCE ONTOLOGY - ANNOTATIONS

Accession:SO:1000032 term browser browse the term
Definition:A sequence alteration which included an insertion and a deletion, affecting 2 or more bases.
Comment:Indels can have a different number of bases than the corresponding reference sequence. The term name was changed from indel to delins on 2/24/2019 to align with the HGVS nomenclature term for a deletion-insertion. Indel was causing confusion in the annotation community (github issue 445). The HGVS nomenclature definition of deletion-insertion (delins) is a sequence change where, compared to a reference sequence, one or more nucleotides are replaced by one or more other nucleotides and which is not a substitution, inversion or conversion.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: deletion-insertion;   indel
 xref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indel "wiki";   loinc:LA9659-9 "Insertion and Deletion"
