Variant Groups

The variant groups endpoint allows users to enumerate all of the variant groups in CIViC and view their membership.

Get a list of variant groups

This endpoint returns a listing of variant groups in CIViC. This index style endpoint is paginated by default. You can use the count and page parameters or the previous and next links to iterate through all the variant groups.
