dbGaP / database of Genotypes and Phenotypes

Enables investigators to have rapid access to a collection of genotypes and phenotypes data, providing a rich resource of both individual-level and summary-level information for their exploration. The browser uses the standard NCBI graphical interface to combine sequence viewer track views with genotype tables and a novel sample-subject data selector that displays core phenotype data about the samples. The dbGaP data browser serves as a third solution, providing researchers with view-only access to a compilation of individual-level data from general research use studies through a simplified controlled-access process.

AtPID / Arabidopsis thaliana Protein Interactome Database

Depicts and integrates the information pertaining to protein-protein interaction networks, domain architecture, ortholog information and GO annotation in the Arabidopsis thaliana proteome. AtPID predicts the Protein-protein interaction pairs by integrating several methods with the Naive Baysian Classifier. All other related information curated in the AtPID is manually extracted from published literatures and other resources from some expert biologists. AtPID collects 5564 mutants with significant morphological alterations which were manually curated to 167 plant ontology (PO) morphology categories and predicts 4457 high confidence gene-PO pairs with 1369 genes as the complement. These single/multiple-gene mutants are indexed and linked to 3919 genes.

Monarch Initiative

Provides tools for genotype-phenotype analysis, genomic diagnostics, and precision medicine across broad areas of disease. Monarch tools leverage this conceptual framework to help users understand and diagnose disease. Statistical similarity calculations enable comparison across species, biological scales, and community-specific vocabularies. Monarch supports researchers and clinicians using this data with visualization tools, application programming interfaces, and a rich web site. This suite of tools has developed four species-agnostic ontologies designed to unify their species-specific counterparts: GENO for genotypes, Uberpheno for phenotypes, UBERON for anatomy and MONDO for diseases. Monarch also contributes to the Gene Ontology, which also unifies gene function and subcellular anatomy across species.

dbGaP Data Browser / database of Genotypes and Phenotypes Data Browser

A resource that enables view-only access to the database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP). dbGaP Data Browser was developed in response to requests from the scientific community for a resource that would more easily enable view-only access of genotypes, aggregate variant data, and individual-level genomic sequence data not available in unrestricted-access (Appendix - Glossary), and without having to download individual dbGaP data sets. This tool allows approved users to find and view specific regions of the human genome, including all allele frequencies and subsets of individual-level genotype and sequence data stored in dbGaP within that region, without having to download the data sets of interest and perform additional analyses.

GWAS Catalog / genome-wide association studies Catalog

Gathers a manually curated resource of all published Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) and association results. GWAS Catalog provides a dedicated mapping spreadsheet between all reported GWAS search interfaces and ontology terms. It allows users to identify the child terms included under each higher-level trait category on the GWAS. Moreover, the database can help in identifying causal variants, understand disease mechanisms, and establish targets for novel therapies.


Extracts and aligns associations for user-specified variants and proxies across a large curated database. PhenoScanner extends current catalogues of genetic data by including all available results as opposed to filtering on strength of association. This database aligns genotype-phenotype associations across traits and proxies, providing the user with an easily interpretable formatted output file. PhenoScanner will make cross-referencing genetic variants with many phenotypes faster and more efficient.

DANCE / Disease-ANCEstry Networks

A graph-based web tool that allows to integrate and visualize information on human complex phenotypes and their GWAS-hits, as well as their risk allele frequencies in different populations. DANCE integrates information from two existing databases: (i) GWAS-hit SNPs reported in the NHGRI-EBI GWAS Catalog and (ii) risk-allele frequencies in Europeans, Africans and Asians from the 1KGP. DANCE provides an interactive way to explore the human SNP-Disease Network and its projection, a Disease-Disease Network. With these functionalities, DANCE fills a gap in our ability to handle and understand the knowledge generated by GWAS and the 1000 Genomes Project.

At present, FishBase covers >33,000 fish species compiled from >52,000 references in partnership with >2,000 collaborators: >300,000 common names and >55,000 pictures.

SIDD / Semantically Integrated Disease-associated Database

Integrates 18 disease-associated databases, for researchers to browse multiple types of disease-related molecular, phenotypic and environmental features (DR-MPEs) in a view. A web interface allows easy navigation for querying information through browsing a disease ontology tree or searching a disease term. Furthermore, a network visualization tool using Cytoscape Web plugin has been implemented. It enhances the SIDD usage when viewing the relationships between diseases and DR-MPEs.


A tool based on a computational algorithm that uses orthology and protein-protein interaction information to infer gene-phenotype associations for multiple species. PhenoPPIOrth is a web server that provides genome-wide phenotype inference for six species: fly, human, mouse, worm, yeast, and zebrafish. We evaluated our inference method by comparing the inferred results with known gene-phenotype associations. The high Area Under the Curve values suggest a significant performance of our method. By applying our method to two human representative diseases, Type 2 Diabetes and Breast Cancer, we demonstrated that our method is able to identify related Gene Ontology terms and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes pathways. The web server can be used to infer functions and putative phenotypes of a gene along with the candidate genes of a phenotype, and thus aids in disease candidate gene discovery.

It provides a metadata selection query interface to guide identification of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) category A–C viral and bacterial pathogens.


Provides a gene-centered summary view of genetic association studies. The system of Genopedia translates a gene name, gene symbol, gene alias or protein name entered by users. It displays information about diseases that have been studied in association with a given gene. A gene-disease network is also generated by defining two genes as “connected” if they have been studied for association with the same disease. Each search result page provides links to the foremost gene-centered databases.
