MWU Libraries


Entrez Gene

Entrez Gene provides a unified query environment for genes defined by sequence and/or in NCBI's Map Viewer. You can query on names, symbols, accessions, publications, GO terms, chromosome numbers, E.C. numbers, and many other attributes associated with genes and the products they encode.

Entrez Genome

Entrez Genome integrates the scientific literature, DNA and protein sequence databases, 3D protein structure and protein domain data, population study data sets, expression data, assemblies of complete genomes, and taxonomic information.

Genetics Home Reference

This is the the National Library of Medicine's web site for consumer information about genetic conditions and the genes responsible for those conditions.

Human Genome Resources

This site links to any number of the NCBI genetics pages.

National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)

Established in 1988 as a national resource for molecular biology information, NCBI creates public databases, conducts research in computational biology, develops software tools for analyzing genome data, and disseminates biomedical information - all for the better understanding of molecular processes affecting human health and disease.

National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI)

The NHGRI supports genetic and genomic research, investigation into the ethical, legal and social implications surrounding genetics research, and educational outreach activities.

Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM)

The OMIM database is a catalog of human genes and genetic disorders authored and edited by Dr. Victor A. McKusick and his colleagues at Johns Hopkins and elsewhere, and developed for the web by NCBI, the National Center for Biotechnology Information. The database contains textual information and references.

Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) created the Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms to help people without scientific backgrounds understand the terms and concepts used in genetic research.


WormBase is an international consortium of biologists and computer scientists dedicated to providing the research community with accurate, current, accessible information concerning the genetics, genomics and biology of C. elegans and some related nematodes.
