ready HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee


General Information
The HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC) aims to assign a unique and ideally meaningful name and symbol to every human gene. The HGNC database currently comprises over 40, 000 public records containing approved human gene nomenclature and associated gene information. The website enables direct links to the searchable HGNC database and other related database resources, such as the HCOP orthology search tool and manually curated gene family webpages.
