Re-engineered OMIM Tracks Released
We announce today the release of our newly re-engineered OMIM
(Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man) tracks for both hg18 and
hg19. With the kind assistance of Ada Hamosh (director),
Joanna Amberger and Francois Schiettecatte of the OMIM project,
we have divided the OMIM records into three separate tracks:
OMIM Allelic Variant SNPs
Variants in the OMIM database that have associated dbSNP identifiers.
The genomic positions of gene entries in the OMIM database.
The coloring indicates the associated OMIM phenotype class.
OMIM Phenotypes - Gene Unknown
Regions known to be associated with a phenotype, but for which no
specific gene is known to be causative. This track also includes
known multi-gene syndromes.
The OMIM tracks are searchable by OMIM number. In most cases,
simply typing the 6-digit MIM number into the position/search box
on the Browser will take you to the record.
The OMIM data are the property of Johns Hopkins University and
will not be available for download from UCSC. Please contact the
OMIM project at omim.org for download information.
UCSC thanks engineers Fan Hsu, Brooke Rhead and Robert Kuhn for
