    HUGO : The Human Gene Nomenclature Database (Hinxton, Uk)
    The Human Gene Nomenclature Database Search tool provides access to the list of currently approved human gene symbols as maintained by the HUGO gene nomenclature committee. Many previously approved symbols are also listed, with links directing users to the current symbol. Minor changes to a previously approved symbol, such as adding a number (eg NRAMP becomes NRAMP1), may not be listed in this way, so users should try a "Symbol begins with" search using the first few letters of a symbol, instead of an exact search, if they fail to find a specific symbol. Other symbols used in the literature (known as aliases) are collected and stored by the HUGO Nomenclature Committee, and are now searchable with this tool. The "Find a gene" facility in GDB may be useful to search for other names/symbols which cannot be found in the Human Gene Nomenclature Database.

    International Classification of Diseases for Oncology, 3rd Edition (ICD-O-3) (WHO, IARC, Lyon, Fr)
    Used principally in tumour or cancer registries for coding the site (topography) and the histology (morphology) of neoplasms, usually obtained from a pathology report.
    Classification structure
    A multi-axial classification of the site, morphology, behaviour, and grading of neoplasms.
    The topography axis uses the ICD-10 classification of malignant neoplasms (except those categories which relate to secondary neoplasms and to specified morphological types of tumours) for all types of tumours, thereby providing greater site detail for non-malignant tumours than is provided in ICD-10. In contrast to ICD-10, the ICD-O includes topography for sites of haematopoietic and reticuloendothelial tumours.
    The morphology axis provides five-digit codes ranging from M-8000/0 to M-9989/3. The first four digits indicate the specific histological term. The fifth digit after the slash (/) is the behaviour code, which indicates whether a tumour is malignant, benign, in situ, or uncertain (whether benign or malignant).
    A separate one-digit code is also provided for histologic grading (differentiation).

    Domain mapping of disease mutations (DMDM) is a database in which each disease mutation can be displayed by its gene, protein or domain location. DMDM provides a unique domain-level view where all human coding mutations are mapped on the protein domain. To build DMDM, all human proteins were aligned to a database of conserved protein domains using a Hidden Markov Model-based sequence alignment tool (HMMer). The resulting protein-domain alignments were used to provide a domain location for all available human disease mutations and polymorphisms. The number of disease mutations and polymorphisms in each domain position are displayed alongside other relevant functional information (e.g. the binding and catalytic activity of the site and the conservation of that domain location). DMDM's protein domain view highlights molecular relationships among mutations from different diseases that might not be clearly observed with traditional gene-centric visualization tools.

The Gene Sorter supports searches on a variety of terms and phrases, including the gene name, the SwissProt protein name, a GenBank accession, or a word or phrase present in a gene's description. The gene family display is highly configurable, allowing the user to control the order and number of columns, the number of rows, and the genes displayed. The tool provides several output formats, including a simple tab-delimited format that may be imported into a spreadsheet or a relational database.

    Fusion Cancer (Beijing) (Beijing, Cn)
    Next-generation mRNA sequencing (RNA-seq) has long been recognized as an effcient tool in dynamic transcriptome analysis. It can provide not only an increased base coverage, but also a higher sample throughput. It facilitates the ability to search fo r alternative-spliced transcripts, post-transcriptional modifications, gene fusions, mutations/SNPs and changes in gene expre ssion. Many databases have been set up for fusion gene detection research, such as Mitelman Database of Chromosome Aberration and Gene Fusions in Cancer and ChimerDB. But they are derived either from experiments or transcript sequences, containing li mited records. The huge amount of RNA-seq data produced in the past few years provides abundant resources in fusion gene dete ction. So we can use these RNA-seq data in the Sequence Read Archive (SRA) on NCBI to look for fusion genes in human cancer g enome. Y. Wang et al. (2015) Diagnostic Pathology,10,131.

    CENSUS (Sanger Center, Hinxton, Uk)
    The Cancer Gene Census is an ongoing effort to catalogue those genes for which mutations have been causally implicated in cancer. The original census and analysis was published in Nature Reviews Cancer and supplemental analysis information related to the paper is also available.
    The census is not static but rather is updated regularly/as needed. In particular we are grateful to Felix Mitelman and his colleagues in providing information on more genes involved in uncommon translocations in leukaemias and lymphomas. Currently, more than 1% of all human genes are implicated via mutation in cancer. Of these, approximately 90% have somatic mutations in cancer, 20% bear germline mutations that predispose to cancer and 10% show both somatic and germline mutations.

    HGMD Human Gene Mutation Database ( Institute of Medical Genetics, Cardiff, Uk)
    Human gene mutation is a highly specific process, and this specificity has important implications for the nature, prevalence and therefore diagnosis of genetic disease. Indeed, the recognition that certain DNA sequences are hypermutable has yielded clues as to the endogenous mutational mechanisms involved and provided insights into the intricacies of the processes of DNA replication and repair (Cooper and Krawczak 1993). In practical terms, a fuller understanding of the mutational process may prove important in molecular diagnostic medicine by contributing to improvements in the design and efficacy of mutation search procedures and strategies in different genetic disorders.
    The Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD) represents an attempt to collate known (published) gene lesions responsible for human inherited disease. This database, whilst originally established for the study of mutational mechanisms in human genes (Cooper and Krawczak 1993), has now acquired a much broader utility in that it embodies an up-to-date and comprehensive reference source to the spectrum of inherited human gene. Thus, HGMD provides information of practical diagnostic importance to (i) researchers and diagnosticians in human molecular genetics, (ii) physicians interested in a particular inherited condition in a given patient or family, and (iii) genetic counsellors.

MedGen is structured to serve health care professionals, the medical genetics community, and other interested parties by providing centralized access to diverse types of content. For example, because MedGen aggregates the plethora of terms used for particular disorders into a specific concept, it provides a Rosetta stone for stakeholders who may use different names for the same disorder. Maintaining a clearly defined set of concepts and terms for phenotypes is essential to support efforts to characterize genetic variation by its effects on specific phenotypes. The assignment of identifiers for those concepts allows computational access to phenotypic information, an essential requirement for the large-scale analysis of genomic data.

    ORPHANET : Database of rare diseases and orphan drugs (INSERM, Paris, Fr)
    This project is the result of a commonly observed fact: rare diseases are difficult to deal with for medical practitioners. This is due to their restricted knowledge of the diseases' natural history, the patient care required, treatment, and sometimes even of its existence. Scientific knowledge exists, or at least partial knowlege, but it is scattered. Because of the physical media on which it is communicated, the information is difficult to access for the great majority of physicians, not to mention patients and their families. Only a very small number of doctors specialize in these diseases, and their practices are scarcely known, sometimes even totally unknown to other practitioners.
    The fields currently covered are:

    ClinGen : Clinical Genome resource (NIH, Bethesda, Us)
