Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) is a comprehensive, authoritative and timely knowledgebase of human genes and genetic disorders compiled to support research and education in human genomics and the practice of clinical genetics. Started by Dr Victor A. McKusick as the definitive reference Mendelian Inheritance in Man, OMIM(More)
McKusick's Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM;, a knowledgebase of human genes and phenotypes, was originally published as a book, Mendelian Inheritance in Man, in 1966. The content of OMIM is derived exclusively from the published biomedical literature and is updated daily. It currently contains 18,961 full-text(More)
OMIM's task of cataloging the association between human phenotypes and their causative genes (the Morbid Map of the Genome) and classifying and naming newly recognized disorders is growing rapidly. Establishing the relationship between genotype and phenotype has become increasingly complex. New technologies such as genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and(More)
Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man, OMIM(®), is a comprehensive, authoritative and timely research resource of curated descriptions of human genes and phenotypes and the relationships between them. The new official website for OMIM, (, was launched in January 2011. OMIM is based on the published peer-reviewed biomedical literature(More)
MOTIVATION Whole-exome sequencing (WES) has opened up previously unheard of possibilities for identifying novel disease genes in Mendelian disorders, only about half of which have been elucidated to date. However, interpretation of WES data remains challenging. RESULTS Here, we analyze protein-protein association (PPA) networks to identify candidate genes(More)
Genetic make-up of an individual is responsible for expression of external characters. Genes express through creation of intermediate products such as amino acids and proteins in turn. Proteins structurally and functionally are responsible for causing phenotype change. Some properties like mutations in gene may cause abnormalities. This makes it necessary(More)
