Human Genome Databases

OMIM (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man) It is a catalog of human genes and genetic disorders.
GeneCards - integrated biomedical genetic information It is a database that intends to address some of these problems by integrating biomedical information taken from several sources.
OMIM gene map It presents the cytogenetic map location of disease genes and other expressed genes described in OMIM.
The HuGeMap database.
GenAtlas Compiles the information relevant to the mapping efforts of the Human Genome Project.
The Genome Channel This system is a prototype graphical browser for querying the annotated reference genome.
Human Genome Variation Database
dbSNP - A Database of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms.
Transcript Map of the Human Genome.
The Genetic Location Database (LDB) Ldb is an analytical database for constructing fully integrated genetic and physical maps.
BodyMap - Anatomical Expression Database of Human Genes It is a data bank of expression information of human genes, novel or known, in various tissues or cell types.
CEPH-Genethon integrated map This page allows you to search the CEPH-Genethon mapping data used to build the first generation physical map of the human genome.
CEPH Genotype database It maintains a database of genotypes for all genetic markers that have been tested in the reference families for linkage mapping of the human chromosomes.
dbEST Expressed Sequence Tag Database The dbEST Database holds many Human ESTs.
UniGene - Unique Human Gene Sequence Collection This holds clusters of human EST sequences that represent the transcription products of distinct genes.
dbSTS Sequence Tagged Site Database It holds many Human STSs.
V BASE: A Directory of Human Immunoglobulin V Genes A directory of human immunoglobulin germline variable region sequences compiled from over a thousand published sequences.
Anthony Nolan Research Institute (ANRI) The WHO Nomenclature and HLA Sequence alignments are available from this site, together with monthly updates.
Atlas of Genetics and Cytogenetics in Oncology and Haematology It is a cooperative process of reviewing and updating on somatic genetics, clinical entities in cancer, and on cancer-prone diseases.
TIGR Human Gene Index (HGI) The TIGR Human Gene Index (HGI) integrates research results from international human gene research projects, including research at TIGR. The Index is an outgrowth of our Human cDNA Database (HCD) and Expressed Gene Anatomy Database (EGAD) projects.
GeneLoc GeneLoc presents an integrated map for each human chromosome.

Comparative Genome Databases

Human/Mouse Homology Relationships This is the Seldin/Debry Human/Mouse Homology Map, a table comparing genes in homologous segments of DNA from human and mouse sources, sorted by position in each genome.
XLocus It is an experimental attempt to link several genome databases together.
XREF Database It is a component of an effort to cross-reference the genetics of model organisms with mammalian phenotypes and expedite the discovery of genes mutated in human disease states.
Online Mendelian Inheritance In Animals (OMIA) It is a database of the genes and phenes that have been documented in a wide range of animal species other than those for which databases already exist (human, rat and mouse).
Online Cytogenetics of Animals (OCOA) a bibliographic resource.
INRA comparative homology database
Mutation Spectra Database This database consists of over 24 000 mutations in 18 viral, bacterial, yeast or mammalian genes.
Gene Census Genome Comparisons It is intended to give a comprehensive statistical accounting of protein structural features in genomes, and in the sequence databanks -- in the sense of a demographic census.
