Genetic Relationship and Fingerprinting (GRAF) is a rapid statistical method to detect duplicates and closely related samples in large genomic datasets to be used as a quality assurance tool in dbGaP data processing. For more information, see this abstract in PubMed.
A free, centralized voluntary registry of comprehensive genetic test information covering clinical and research tests for Mendelian disorders and drug responses including multigenic, array-based, biochemical, cytogenetic, and molecular tests.
This resource organizes NCBI information, resources, data, and tools and utilities on genomes including sequences, maps, chromosomes, assemblies, and annotations. Sequence and map data from the whole genomes of organisms. The genomes represent both completely sequenced organisms and those for which sequencing is in progress.
MedGen is NCBI's portal to information about conditions and phenotypes related to Medical Genetics. Terms from the NIH Genetic Testing Registry (GTR), UMLS, HPO, Orphanet, ClinVar and other sources are aggregated into concepts, each of which is assigned a unique identifier and a preferred name and symbol. The core content of the record may include names, identifiers used by other databases, mode of inheritance, clinical features, and map location of the loci affecting the disorder. The concept identifier (CUI) is used to aggregate information about that concept, similar to the way NCBI Gene serves as a gateway to gene-related information.
MedGen provides links to such resources as: Genetic tests registered in the NIH Genetic Testing Registry (GTR), GeneReviews, ClinVar, OMIM, Related genes, Disorders with similar clinical features, Medical and research literature, Practice guidelines, Consumer resources, Ontologies such as HPO and ORDO.
Links to the GTR, GeneReviews, and Practice Guidelines are based on curation by NCBI staff. Other data feeds are automated, but reviewed by NCBI staff and informed by feedback from the community.
