GeneCards (www.genecards.org) is a comprehensive, authoritative compendium of annotative information about human genes, widely used for nearly 15 years. Its gene-centric content is automatically mined and integrated from over 80 digital sources, resulting in a web-based deep-linked card for each of >73,000 human gene entries, encompassing the following(More)
Comprehensive disease classification, integration and annotation are crucial for biomedical discovery. At present, disease compilation is incomplete, heterogeneous and often lacking systematic inquiry mechanisms. We introduce MalaCards, an integrated database of human maladies and their annotations, modeled on the architecture and strategy of the GeneCards(More)
Since 1998, the bioinformatics, systems biology, genomics and medical communities have enjoyed a synergistic relationship with the GeneCards database of human genes (http://www.genecards.org). This human gene compendium was created to help to introduce order into the increasing chaos of information flow. As a consequence of viewing details and deep links(More)
Sophisticated genomic navigation strongly benefits from a capacity to establish a similarity metric among genes. GeneDecks is a novel analysis tool that provides such a metric by highlighting shared descriptors between pairs of genes, based on the rich annotation within the GeneCards compendium of human genes. The current implementation addresses(More)
Postgenomics data are produced in large volumes by life sciences and clinical applications of novel omics diagnostics and therapeutics for precision medicine. To move from "data-to-knowledge-to-innovation," a crucial missing step in the current era is, however, our limited understanding of biological and clinical contexts associated with data. Prominent(More)
The study of biological pathways is key to a large number of systems analyses. However, many relevant tools consider a limited number of pathway sources, missing out on many genes and gene-to-gene connections. Simply pooling several pathways sources would result in redundancy and the lack of systematic pathway interrelations. To address this, we exercised a(More)
BACKGROUND Gene annotation is a pivotal component in computational genomics, encompassing prediction of gene function, expression analysis, and sequence scrutiny. Hence, quantitative measures of the annotation landscape constitute a pertinent bioinformatics tool. GeneCards is a gene-centric compendium of rich annotative information for over 50,000 human(More)
GeneCards, the human gene compendium, enables researchers to effectively navigate and inter-relate the wide universe of human genes, diseases, variants, proteins, cells, and biological pathways. Our recently launched Version 4 has a revamped infrastructure facilitating faster data updates, better-targeted data queries, and friendlier user experience. It(More)
MOTIVATION Non-coding RNA (ncRNA) genes are increasingly acknowledged for their importance in the human genome. However, there is no comprehensive non-redundant database for all such human genes. RESULTS We leveraged the effective platform of GeneCards, the human gene compendium, together with the power of fRNAdb and additional primary sources, to(More)
Diabetic nephropathy, as the most prevalent chronic disease of the kidney, has also become the primary cause of end-stage renal disease with the incidence of kidney disease in type 2 diabetics continuously rising. As with most chronic diseases, the pathophysiology is multifactorial with a number of deregulated molecular processes contributing to disease(More)
