Xenbase: a genomic, epigenomic and transcriptomic model organism database

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5753396
PMID: 29059324
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkx936

[…] ebrafish links, Xenbase gene pages now have ortholog links to corresponding genes in fruit fly (), chicken (), and worm () MODs. The Genetic Phenotypes section has been augmented by links to OMIM (), MalaCards (), DECIPHER (), KEGG () Disease and IMPC () mouse phenotype. In addition to matching OMIM IDs via gene symbols, Xenbase curators now also do manual annotation of Gene:OMIM associations from […]

Drug repurposing in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis filtered by a bioinformatics derived composite score

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5626774
PMID: 28974751
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-12849-8

[…] all. To measure the functional score of each drug, we used the online tool ToppGene ( We inserted a list of 71 IPF unique gene identifiers, as found in Malacards (, as a train set and then checked the gene targets of each repurposed drug as test set against it, selecting Pathway, Interaction and Coexpression enrichment betwe […]


Rational confederation of genes and diseases: NGS interpretation via GeneCards, MalaCards and VarElect

Biomed Eng Online
PMCID: 5568599
PMID: 28830434
DOI: 10.1186/s12938-017-0359-2

[…] ch disease also include disease-related summaries and publications, disease categories and classifications, symptoms, gene variations, drugs, clinical trials, genetic tests and animal models. Several MalaCards sections (summaries, symptoms and aliases) are incorporated into the GeneCards database. This allows the content of such sections to be searchable in the context of a gene-centric database.A […]


Induced pluripotent stem cell modelling of HLHS underlines the contribution of dysfunctional NOTCH signalling to impaired cardiogenesis

Hum Mol Genet
PMCID: 5886295
PMID: 28521042
DOI: 10.1093/hmg/ddx140

[…] SP6500 (). Over 200 deleterious variants were identified in each of the five HLHS patients. Further selection of these variants was carried out using the LifeMap Discovery Tools [VarElect, GeneCards, MalaCards (,)] and PubMed using the search terms: cardiomyocytes, HLHS, mitral stenosis, aortic stenosis, bicuspid valve, outflow tract problems, cardiac vasculogenesis, patent ductus arteriosus, cong […]


Rapid development of entity based data models for bioinformatics with persistence object oriented design and structured interfaces

BioData Min
PMCID: 5346198
PMID: 28293298
DOI: 10.1186/s13040-017-0130-z

[…] ent with BioPython/BioJava. However, the context of use is largely different. Moreover, by utilizing flexible structuring of URLs, the proposed framework also supports interfaces to databases such as MalaCards and BioModels. We note that another project – BioServices [] - does indeed provides an interface to BioModels. Moreover, our framework provides an interface to Apache Derby – a strong ORM-ba […]
