Description

Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM® is a continuously updated catalog of human genes and genetic disorders and traits, with particular focus on the molecular relationship between genetic variation and phenotypic expression. It is considered to be a phenotypic companion to the Human Genome Project. OMIM is currently biocurated at the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Although you may still search OMIM through NCBI (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/omim), the regularly updated database and full range of search functions are now maintained at omim.org.

Dates Covered

MIM first published in 1966; OMIM updates are frequent.
