The Human Genome App is designed so that a person can obtain information about a known gene or discover relationships between genes and diseases, syndromes or traits.
The app is aimed at anyone curious about where a gene might be located on a chromosome and what we know about that gene. How many sites are there for height? Where does a gene for Cystic Fibrosis sit? Do some genes reside on more than one chromosome? This app is designed to answer just these questions.
The data has been retrieved from public the National Center for Biotechnology (NCBI) Information, National Library of Medicine (NLM), National Institutes of Health, Health and Human Services. Links are provided to retrieve the lastest data for each genetic marker listed.
Fixed inaccurate graphics.
Ratings and Reviews
I was skeptical since this hadn't been updated in years, but this is a really great, easy to use reference. I'm not sure if the data available in the search is updated or not though, so that would be my only concern, if it is missing more recent discoveries. I hope the developers continue to make apps like this one!
This is a great App for geneticists. The genome is such a mess. Enter complex diseases, and things get worse. Therefore, it is very important to get a quick and uncluttered overview every now and then. This App does exactly that. I would love to see a visual representation of GWAS effect sizes in future versions.
This is the best genome app I have seen. My brother has autism so I looked it up out of curiosity. This is for people who want to figure out what gene is for a disease. 😍😍😍
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
