Effectively navigate the universe of biological entities - genes, proteins, cells, biological pathways and diseases, and the connections between them. LifeMap Sciences’ integrated biomedical knowledgebase includes GeneCards®, the human gene database, MalaCards, the human disease database, and LifeMap Discovery®, the tissues and cells database.
GeneCards is a searchable, integrated database of human genes that provides concise genomic related information, on all known and predicted human genes.
GeneCards is a searchable, integrated database of human genes that provides comprehensive, updated, and user-friendly information on all known and predicted human genes.
GeneCards extracts and integrates gene-related data, including genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, genetic, clinical, and functional information. This is automatically mined from over 100 carefully selected web sources, thereby allowing one-stop access to a very broad information base. GeneCards overcomes barriers of data format and heterogeneity by using standard nomenclature and approved gene symbols. It presents a rich subset of data for each gene, and provides deep links to the original sources for further scrutiny. Widely used, GeneCards assists in the understanding of gene-related aspects of biology and medicine.
MalaCards - the human disease database - is an integrated database of human diseases and their annotations, modeled on the architecture and richness of the popular GeneCards database of human genes.
MalaCards is organized into "disease cards" that integrate prioritized information and list numerous known aliases for each disease, along with a variety of annotations and inter-disease connections. Annotations include: symptoms, drugs, articles, genes, clinical trials, related diseases/disorders and more. An automated process extracts and integrates disease-related data from over 60 carefully selected web sources including information gleaned from GeneCards to compile the disease database.
MalaCards integrates both specialized and general disease lists, including rare diseases, genetic diseases, complex disorders and more.
MalaCards disease sections are populated by:
LifeMap Discovery - the cells and tissues database - integrates embryonic development with stem cell biology, molecular, cellular, and anatomical and disease related information.
LifeMap Discovery is a searchable, integrated database that provides:
