Learn to use Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man, or OMIM, a catalog of human genes and genetic conditions. OMIM is a foundational resource in genomics and is valuable for clinicians and biomedical researchers. OMIM links and data are found at sites all around the bioinformatics sphere, but understanding the full scope of OMIM's data and resources enable the most comprehensive understanding of human phenotypes and disease. OMIM contains full-text summaries of information from the scientific literature, and provides extensive links to the literature resources and other genomic resource tools as well. Use OMIM as a comprehensive first stop to find important information and gene links for human Mendelian disorders.

Video Tip of the Week: Human Phenotype Ontology, HPO: Typically, our Tips-of-the-Week cover a specific software tool or feature that we think readers would maybe like to try out. But this week's tip is a bit different. It's got a conceptual piece that is ...
Friday SNPpets: This week's SNPpets include an interactive timeline of cancer research, NIH's statement on cloud-stored genomics data, Facebook and genomics data, hilarious typos in some published equations, and more....
Video Tip of the Week: PhosphoSitePlus, protein post-translational modifications : Nucleotide sequence data and analysis commands the bulk of my attention on most days. But certainly post-translational modification of proteins has a lot of influence on the ultimate function (or dysfu...
Video Tip of the Week: Nowomics, set up alert feeds for new data: Yeah, I know you know. There's a lot of genomics and proteomics data coming out every day--some of it in the traditional publication route, but some of it isn't--and it's only getting harder and harder...
Video Tip of the Week: PheGenI, Phenotype-Genotype Integrator: The hunt for variations in genes and genomes has been both fruitful and frustrating. We can see genome variations in a variety of ways, but we can't always connect them with a phenotype easily. And vic...
