Definition Comprehensive compendium of human genes an Comprehensive 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 focuses on the relationship between phenotype and genotype. It is updated daily, and the entries contain copious links to other genetics resources.<br /> NIF Houses several 'views' on the OMIM data set below are detailed descriptions of these views. OMIM: GeneAllelePhenotype: <span class="nifTabHeader"> <a class="external" target="_blank" href="">OMIM DiseaseGeneAssociation View </a> is organized by the OMIM phenotype/disease identifiers, and collects all genes that are annotated to a given phenotype.  It also fetches the text that is annotated directly to the disease (rather than to the genes annotated to the disease).  Since OMIM attributes several names to the same phenotype, this makes synonyms to the phenotype, using the preferredtitle as the official phenotype name.  Unfortunately, these different names don't carry any different kind of identifier, so they are only synonyms.  The indicated pubmed ids are those annotated directly to the phenotype, and not to the associated genes.</span> The GeneAllelePhenotype view is the gene-allele-phenotype table from OMIM. Annotations are recorded at both the gene and allelic variant level. This table reflects the allelic phenotypes that do not reference the omim phenotype identifiers directly. The OMIM GenePhenotype view is organized by OMIM gene ids, giving us a high-level gene-phenotype table, with each gene possibly having more than one row (indicating different phenotypes).  This includes the gene mapping information, including cytogenic location, coordinates (by locus or gene mapping), and gene xrefs.  Both the phenotypic inheritance and locus inheritance are included, The information about the genome build from which the coords are drawn is located in OMIM's <a href="">faq</a>.  This view currently mixes both identified genes, and not-yet-cloned loci, which is most-often reflected in null values for the gene-symbol.  Sometimes there are phenotypes that do not have OMIM phenotype ids, and therefore they aren't in the disease-gene-association view, nor would they be in the gene-allele-disease view. d they be in the gene-allele-disease view.
