BioGene is an information tool for biological research. Use BioGene to learn about gene function. Enter a gene symbol or gene name, for example "CDK4" or "cyclin dependent kinase 4" and BioGene will retrieve its gene function and references into its function (GeneRIF).
BioGene was produced in affiliation with the Computational Biology Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center with primary information from Entrez Gene at the NCBI.
Updated App to work on iOS 10 and later.

Love this app!! Gives a great short description of a gene and then provides a link for more in depth information relative to that gene and its functions. I would recommend this app to any science majors or research professionals.

I used this in a recent lecture in which the presenter discussed the human gene ATG5. Within ~30 seconds I had found a very interesting abstract about it's function in neurobiology. This in turned led to a question and lively discussion. Cool.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
