Standardized protocols have been designed and developed specifically for clinical information collection and obtaining trio genomic information from infants affected with congenital anomalies (CA) and their parents, as well as securing human biological resources. The protocols include clinical and genomic information collection on multiple CA that were difficult to diagnose using pre-existing screening methods. We obtained human-derived resources and genomic information from 138 cases, including 45 families of infants with CA and their parent trios. For the clinical information collection protocol, criteria for target patient selection and a consent system for collecting and utilizing research resources are crucial. Whole genome sequencing data were generated for all participants, and standardized protocols were developed for resource collection and manufacturing. We recorded the phenotype information according to the Human Phenotype Ontology term, and epidemiological information was collected through an environmental factor questionnaire. Updating and recording of clinical symptoms and genetic information that have been newly added or changed over time are significant. The protocols enabled long-term tracking by including the growth and development status that reflect the important characteristics of newborns. Using these clinical and genetic information collection protocols for CA, an essential platform for early genetic diagnosis and diagnostic research can be established, and new genetic diagnostic guidelines can be presented in the near future.
