Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM), a knowledgebase of human genes and genetic disorders
Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) is a comprehensive, authoritative and timely knowledgebase of human genes and genetic disorders compiled to support human genetics research and educationExpand
The Sequence of the Human Genome
Comparative genomic analysis indicates vertebrate expansions of genes associated with neuronal function, with tissue-specific developmental regulation, and with the hemostasis and immune systems are indicated. Expand

  • 8 March 2007
The rapid progress in an important part of medical genetics and genomics is reviewed, as chronicled in MIM/OMIM over these 40 years, and the future challenges of OMIM are contemplated. Expand
Online Mendelian Inheritance In Man (OMIM)
Online Mendelian Inheritance In Man is a public database of bibliographic information about human genes and genetic disorders that is increasingly becoming a major gateway for clinicians, students, and basic researchers to the ever‐growing literature and resources of human genetics. Expand
Implications of the Human Genome Project for medical science.
Genomic medicine holds the ultimate promise of revolutionizing the diagnosis and treatment of many illnesses, but much work remains to understand how this "instruction book for human biology" carries out its multitudes of functions. Expand

SPG20 is mutated in Troyer syndrome, an hereditary spastic paraplegia
Comparative sequence analysis indicates that spartin shares similarity with molecules involved in endosomal trafficking and with spastin, a molecule implicated in microtubule interaction that is commonly mutated in HSP. Expand
The Marfan syndrome: diagnosis and management.
THE Marfan syndrome is classified as a heritable disorder of connective tissue because clinical and pathological alterations involve supporting elements. It long has been assumed that an inborn err...
