Abbreviation:HGNC

Recommended
General Information
The HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC) is responsible for approving unique symbols, names and IDs for human loci, including protein coding genes, ncRNA genes and pseudogenes, to allow unambiguous scientific communication. The HGNC database is the resource for approved human gene nomenclature and is accessed via the website genenames.org. The website displays a page for every named gene and includes curated nomenclature information (including approved, previous and alias gene names and symbols). The website also displays manually curated gene group pages, the HCOP orthology tool and multi-symbol checker, and links to many other resources.
