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)
Recent enhancements and current research in the GeneCards (GC) (http://bioinfo.weizmann.ac.il/cards/) project are described, including the addition of gene expression profiles and integrated gene locations. Also highlighted are the contributions of specialized associated human gene-centric databases developed at the Weizmann Institute. These include the(More)
MOTIVATION In the post-genomic era, functional analysis of genes requires a sophisticated interdisciplinary arsenal. Comprehensive resources are challenged to provide consistently improving, state-of-the-art tools. RESULTS GeneCards (Rebhan et al., 1998) has made innovative strides: (a). regular updates and enhancements incorporating new genes enriched(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)
MOTIVATION High density oligonucleotide arrays are usually annotated in a one-to-one fashion, with each probeset assigned to one gene. However, in reality, subsets of oligonucleotides in a probeset may match sequences within more than one gene, potentially leading to misinterpretations. Moreover, a gene is often represented by more than one probeset, and(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)
MOTIVATION Despite the numerous available whole-genome mapping resources, no comprehensive, integrated map of the human genome yet exists. RESULTS GeneLoc, software adjunct to GeneCards and UDB, integrates gene lists by comparing genomic coordinates at the exon level and assigns unique and meaningful identifiers to each gene.
The interpretation of microarray expression results often includes extensive efforts to identify and annotate the gene representatives immobilised on the arrays. In this paper we describe the usage of our automatic GeneAnnot system, which links between Affymetrix arrays and the rich human gene annotations available in GeneCards. We explain GeneCards search(More)
