Collects coronary artery disease (CAD) candidate genes and their detailed evidence associated with CAD from publications. CADgene is a comprehensive database that provides three approaches for searching the data, including the text search and sequence search. For each candidate gene, CADgene displays its involved KEGG pathways and all the CAD-related genes in these pathways. The database aims to provide a complete and up-to-date gene resource to the research community.
