ready Vertebrate Gene Nomenclature Committee

Abbreviation:VGNC

General Information
The Vertebrate Gene Nomenclature Committee (VGNC) is an extension of the established HGNC (HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee) project that names human genes. VGNC is responsible for assigning standardized names to genes in vertebrate species that currently lack a nomenclature committee. The VGNC also coordinates with the 6 existing vertebrate nomenclature committees, MGNC (mouse), RGNC (rat), CGNC (chicken), AGNC (Anole green lizard), XNC (Xenopus frog) and ZNC (zebrafish), to ensure genes are named in line with their human homologs.
