NOTE: OMIM is intended for use primarily by physicians and other professionals concerned with genetic disorders, by genetics researchers, and by advanced students in science and medicine. While the OMIM database is open to the public, users seeking information about a personal medical or genetic condition are urged to consult with a qualified physician for diagnosis and for answers to personal questions.
Because the UCSC Genes mappings are based on associations from RefSeq and UniProt, they are dependent on any interpretations from those sources. Furthermore, because many OMIM records refer to multiple gene names, or syndromes not tightly mapped to individual genes, the associations in this track should be treated with skepticism and any conclusions based on them should be carefully scrutinized using independent resources.
This track shows the positions of canonical UCSC genes that have been associated with identifiers in the Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) database. The associations were obtained from RefSeq and UniProt annotations. To simplify the track, annotations on splice variants have been collapsed so that only canonical UCSC splice variants are displayed.
OMIM is a compendium of human genes and genetic phenotypes. The full-text, referenced overviews in OMIM contain information on all known Mendelian disorders and over 12,000 genes. OMIM is authored and edited at the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, under the direction of Dr. Ada Hamosh. This database was initiated in the early 1960s by Dr. Victor A. McKusick as a catalog of Mendelian traits and disorders, entitled Mendelian Inheritance in Man (MIM).
Positions of OMIM-associated canonical UCSC genes are displayed as solid blocks. The color of the block depends on the classification assigned by OMIM.
Where relevant, disease information from the Morbid Map "disorder" column is displayed on the details page for an item. If the canonical UCSC gene represents a cluster of more than one gene, the other genes are listed on the track details page.
By default, items are labeled with the OMIM identifier. The label can be changed to the OMIM gene/syndrome or the UCSC gene symbol on the track configuration page.
This annotation was constructed as follows:
In addition, data from the OMIM genemap and morbidmap files were loaded into the omimGeneMap and omimMorbidMap tables in the Genome Browser database.
Thanks to OMIM, NCBI, and UniProt for the use of their data. This track was constructed by Fan Hsu in the UCSC Genome Bioinformatics Group.
