Automatically Extracted Gene Information

Some of the gene information on Genetics Home Reference is obtained directly from other reputable databases, including NCBI Gene and UniProt. This information is not reviewed by Genetics Home Reference staff. Pages that display automated gene information are clearly marked and include links to their original sources.

In some cases, you may notice that information automatically extracted from NCBI Gene and UniProt is slightly different from information provided elsewhere on Genetics Home Reference. These inconsistencies occur because Genetics Home Reference, NCBI Gene, and UniProt use different criteria for inclusion and exclusion of data, have different review processes, and are updated at different times.
