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 array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) define “risk alleles” that are inherently prone to substantial interpretation and…

TLDR
This paper explores Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man's evolution with attention to how disease is distinguished from clinically irrelevant variation and how phenotypic similarities are captured in cases where there is no obvious genotypic association.
Searching Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM): A Knowledgebase of Human Genes and Genetic Phenotypes
TLDR
This unit provides an overview of the types of information in OMIM and optimal strategies for searching and retrieving the information and the relationship between genes and genetic disorders is highlighted in this unit.
Clinical interpretation of CNVs with cross-species phenotype data
TLDR
An integrated ranking scheme based on phenotypic matching, degree of overlap with known benign or pathogenic CNVs and the haploinsufficiency score for the prioritisation of CNVs responsible for a patient's clinical findings is presented.
Pathway networks generated from human disease phenome
TLDR
A pathway-based approach to extend disease-variant associations and find new molecular connections between genetic mutations and diseases is proposed, finding novel disease connections not otherwise detected through gene-level analysis.
An integrative, translational approach to understanding rare and orphan genetically based diseases
TLDR
The approach can efficiently identify known candidate genes for genetic diseases in Orphanet and OMIM and is found to find evidence that mutations in the HIP1 gene might cause Bassoe syndrome, a rare disorder with unknown genetic aetiology.
The humankind genome: from genetic diversity to the origin of human diseases.
Genome-wide association studies have failed to establish common variant risk for the majority of common human diseases. The underlying reasons for this failure are explained by recent studies of
IDGenetics: a comprehensive database for genes and mutations of intellectual disability related disorders
TLDR
The integrative and annotated intellectual disability database has been developed, named 'IDGenetics', which contains known information about ID, including 815 genes and 17102 variants associated with 918 clinical diseases collected from 3822 publications and ID-related databases.
The Genetic Basis of Mendelian Phenotypes: Discoveries, Challenges, and Opportunities.
TLDR
This collaborative effort has identified 956 genes, including 375 not previously associated with human health, that underlie a Mendelian phenotype, providing insight into study design and analytical strategies, identify novel mechanisms of disease, and reveal the extensive clinical variability of Mendelia phenotypes.

TLDR
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.
Refining genotype phenotype correlations in muscular dystrophies with defective glycosylation of dystroglycan.
Muscular dystrophies with reduced glycosylation of alpha-dystroglycan (alpha-DG), commonly referred to as dystroglycanopathies, are a heterogeneous group of autosomal recessive conditions which
The Human Phenotype Ontology: a tool for annotating and analyzing human hereditary disease.
TLDR
A Human Phenotype Ontology with over 8000 terms representing individual phenotypic anomalies and all clinical entries in Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man with the terms of the HPO are annotated.
The Mammalian Phenotype Ontology as a tool for annotating, analyzing and comparing phenotypic information
The Mammalian Phenotype (MP) Ontology enables robust annotation of mammalian phenotypes in the context of mutations, quantitative trait loci and strains that are used as models of human biology and
Musculocontractural Ehlers‐Danlos Syndrome (former EDS type VIB) and adducted thumb clubfoot syndrome (ATCS) represent a single clinical entity caused by mutations in the dermatan‐4‐sulfotransferase 1 encoding CHST14 gene
TLDR
The findings confirm that the EDS‐variant associated with CHST14 mutations forms a clinical spectrum, which is proposed to coin as “musculocontractural EDS” and which results from a defect in dermatan sulfate biosynthesis, perturbing collagen assembly.
A new Ehlers–Danlos syndrome with craniofacial characteristics, multiple congenital contractures, progressive joint and skin laxity, and multisystem fragility‐related manifestations
TLDR
It is concluded that these patients represent a new clinically recognizable type of EDS with distinct craniofacial characteristics, multiple congenital contractures, progressive joint and skin laxity, and multisystem fragility‐related manifestations.
Elements of morphology: Introduction
TLDR
The goals are to standardize these terms and reach consensus regarding their definitions, which will increase the utility of descriptions of the human phenotype and facilitate reliable comparisons of findings among patients.
IC3D classification of corneal dystrophies.
TLDR
This chapter gives the summary of clinical findings, onset, course, genetics, nosology, light and electron microscopy as well as immunohistochemistry for 25 different entities included as corneal dystrophies in this survey.
Ehlers–Danlos syndrome type VIB with characteristic facies, decreased curvatures of the spinal column, and joint contractures in two unrelated girls
TLDR
Two unrelated girls, aged 11 and 14 years, with clinical manifestations of Ehlers–Danlos syndrome (EDS) type VIB, characteristic facies, skeletal abnormalities, and other features are described and it is proposed that these two girls represent a clinically recognizable subgroup of EDS type V IB.
An autosomal recessive adducted thumb‐club foot syndrome observed in Turkish cousins
TLDR
Male and female cousins, the offspring of consanguineous Turkish parents, have been affected by a hitherto unreported combination of problems comprising moderate to severe psychomotor developmental delay, ocular anterior chamber abnormality, facial dysmorphisms and arachnodactyly and distal arthrogryposis with severely adducted thumbs and club feet.
