Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is a key area of precision medicine, which is already being implemented in some health systems and may help guide clinicians toward effective therapies for individual patients. Over the last 2 decades, the Pharmacogenomics Knowledgebase (PharmGKB) has built a unique repository of PGx knowledge, including annotations of clinical guideline and regulator-approved drug labels in addition to evidence-based drug pathways and annotations of the scientific literature. All of this knowledge is freely accessible on the PharmGKB website. In the first of a series of PharmGKB tutorials, we introduce the PharmGKB coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) portal and, using examples of drugs found in the portal, demonstrate some of the main features of PharmGKB. This paper is intended as a resource to help users become quickly acquainted with the wealth of information stored in PharmGKB.
