Atlas of Human Malformation Syndromes in Diverse Populations The NHGRI has begun development of an atlas of genome malformations. It is browsable by condition or by geographic population. Tags Save
Blood Group Antigen Gene Mutation Database (dbRBC) NCBI. The Blood Group Antigen Gene Mutation Database (dbRBC) documents variations in genes that directly or indirectly affect blood groups. It thus is a locus-specific mutation database (LSDB) that covers multiple genes. Tags Save
CarpeDB: A Comprehensive Database on the Genetics of Epilepsy CarpeDB serves as a novel source for epilepsy researchers by featuring scores of "epilepsy genes" and associated publications in one locus. Furthermore, multiple genes implicated in epilepsy are also implicated in other human disorders. Tags Save

CGAP and CGCI - Cancer Genome Anatomy Project & Cancer Genome Characterization Initiative The goal of the NCI's Cancer Genome Anatomy Project is to determine the gene expression profiles of normal, precancer, and cancer cells, leading eventually to improved detection, diagnosis, and treatment for the patient. Includes high-quality histology photos of tissue expression. Tags Save

Database of Genomic Variants A comprehensive summary of structural variation in the human genome. Tags Save
dbGaP The database of Genotype and Phenotype (dbGaP) was developed to archive and distribute the results of studies that have investigated the interaction of genotype and phenotype. Such studies include genome-wide association studies, medical sequencing, molecular diagnostic assays, as well as association between genotype and non-clinical traits. Tags Save

G2D: Candidate Genes to Inherited Diseases The Genes2Diseases server presents precomputed candidate genes for more than 600 genetically inherited diseases that have been mapped onto chromosomal regions without assignment of a particular gene. Tags Save
GenAtlas GENATLAS contains relevant information with respect to gene mapping and genetic diseases. GENATLAS is structured in three databases: Genes database, Phenotypes database, Citations database (linked to the two previous). The information is collected from published literature. Tags Save
GeneCards GeneCards is an integrated database of human genes that includes automatically-mined genomic, proteomic and transcriptomic information, as well as orthologies, disease relationships, SNPs, gene expression, gene function, and service links for ordering assays and antibodies. Tags Save
