Abstract

Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) is a non-sequence-based information resource that can be of tremendous use to genomics researchers, physicians, and patients. There are two main ways in which a user can search the OMIM database. One may choose to search the OMIM database directly from the NCBI home page, as described in this unit. Alternatively, OMIM can be downloaded and run on any internal site where the user may want to keep from submitting data across the Web or where a local installation would be otherwise advantageous. Support Protocol describes how to navigate through an OMIM record.
