  1. Imprinted Gene Catalogue
    Full Name of the Resource : Imprinted genes and parent-of-origin effects in animals
    Resource Category : Databases -> Human Genes and Diseases -> Gene-System or Disease-Specific Databases

    Brief Description : The imprinted gene and parent-of-origin effect database (http://www.otago.ac.nz/IGC) consists of two sections. One section catalogues the current literature on imprinted genes in humans and animals. The second, and new, section catalogues current reports of parental origin of de novo mutations in humans alone. The database includes descriptions of 85 imprinted genes from several mammalian species, over 300 entries on reported parent-of-origin effects in animals, and 1700 mutations (found in 59 different genes) with a parent-of-origin effect. Data is accessed through a search engine and references are hyperlinked to PubMed, UCSC Genome Browser and Ensembl.
