A Genome Wide Search for Gene Environment Effects in Isolated Cleft Lip with or without Cleft Palate Triads Points to an Interaction between Maternal Periconceptional Vitamin Use and Variants in ESRRG

Front Genet
PMCID: 5834486
PMID: 29535761
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2018.00060

[…] , Drug Bank (Law et al., ), and Entrez Gene (Maglott et al., ). Furthermore, Hetionet can also integrate information from the Human Interactome Database (Rolland et al., ), CMap ( or Bgee (Bastian et al., ) to identify potential gene-gene interactions, compound-gene interactions and gene expression in specific tissue, respectively. We queried Hetionet to visualize the relationship […]


Self domestication in Homo sapiens: Insights from comparative genomics

[…] gh expression in tissues such as brain, bone, and adrenal glands. For this, we relied on the following resources: Brainspan (, Human Brain Transcriptome (, Bgee (, Proteomics DB (, Human Protein Atlas (, Gene Enrichment Profiler ( […]


psygenet2r: a R/Bioconductor package for the analysis of psychiatric disease genes

PMCID: 5860088
PMID: 28961763
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btx506

[…] genes. The function enrichedPD performs an enrichment analysis using the diseases from PsyGeNET, while the topAnatEnrichment function is based on the expression of genes in anatomical structures from Bgee database (; ). The result for both functions is a data frame containing the enrichment results with the associated p-value. […]


Selective Constraints on Coding Sequences of Nervous System Genes Are a Major Determinant of Duplicate Gene Retention in Vertebrates

Mol Biol Evol
PMCID: 5850798
PMID: 28981708
DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msx199

[…] Human RNA-seq data from the GTEx consortium (; ) were retrieved from Bgee release 14 (GTEx processed and annotated data available on; full release planned in February 2017). All samples were manually annotated to the Uberon ontology and only healthy sample […]


Human fetal heart specific coexpression network involves congenital heart disease/defect candidate genes

PMID: 28436429
DOI: 10.1038/srep46760

[…] icken (Gallus gallus), xenopus (Xenopus tropicalis) from OMA (Orthologous MAtrix) ( and made comparisons of the tissue expression of the orthologs across these species using the Bgee gene expression database ( […]


Identifying new susceptibility genes on dopaminergic and serotonergic pathways for the framing effect in decision making

PMCID: 5629826
PMID: 28431168
DOI: 10.1093/scan/nsx062

[…] ) serotonin transport [sodium-dependent serotonin transporter (SLC6A4)] (see also ) (). HTR3D and HTR3E genes were excluded from data analysis due to their lack of expression in the brain (; see also Bgee: Gene Expression Evolution, DRD4, DRD5, HTR1A/B/D/F, HTR5B, HTRA2 and HTRA4 were also excluded from the final analysis due to the failure of extracting SNPs in the sample.
