ClinVar is a NCBI database that gathers information about genetic variations and how they relate to diseases. It is very important that the information is presented in a way that is not only accurate but also easy to understand and the users can find the information they are looking for quickly. The old version of the page is crowded with information. It is all useful information but hard to decifer.
My goal in the redesign was to simplify the page so that the user wouldn't be overwhelmed with information and divide the information into clear sections to make it scannable. Plenty of white space gives the content breathing room making it more readable and the important information can stand out more. The U.S. web design standards and accesibility were important factors in designing the new Clinvar results page.
