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 and assists in the understanding of gene-related aspects of biology and medicine.
