  1. HGNC Database (View Publication)
    Full Name of the Resource : The HUGO Gene Nomenclature Database (formerly Genew)
    Resource Category : Databases -> Genomic Databases (Non-Human) -> Genome Annotation Terms, Ontologies and Nomenclature

    Brief Description : Genew, the Human Gene Nomenclature Database, is the only resource that provides data for all human genes which have approved symbols. It is managed by the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC) as a confidential database, containing over 16,000 records, 80% of which are represented on the Web by searchable text files. The data in Genew are highly curated by HGNC editors and gene records can be searched on the Web by symbol or name to directly retrieve information on gene symbol, gene name, cytogenetic location, OMIM number and PubMed ID. Data are integrated with other human gene databases e.g. GDB, LocusLink and SWISS-PROT and approved gene symbols are carefully co-ordinated with the Mouse Genome Database (MGD). Approved gene symbols are available for querying and browsing at: http://www.gene.ucl.ac.uk/cgi-bin/nomenclature/searchgenes.pl.
