Phenopedia and Genopedia: disease-centered and gene-centered views of the evolving knowledge of human genetic associations

Bioinformatics. 2010 Jan 1;26(1):145-6. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btp618. Epub 2009 Oct 27.


Summary: We developed web-based applications that encourage the exploration of the literature on human genetic associations by using a database that is continuously updated from PubMed. These applications provide user-friendly interfaces for searching summarized information on human genetic associations, using either genes or diseases as the starting point.

Availability: Phenopedia and Genopedia can be freely accessed at and, respectively.
