How is variant creation in intergenic regions managed, and what causes us to see the message “No nearby genes are available for this query”? 

When creating a new variant in an intergenic area, AlamutTM Visual Plus looks for the two closest genes (upstream and downstream). If no gene is found in a 10,000,000-nucleotide area around the variant position, the “No nearby genes are available” message is displayed.
