Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM®), an online catalog of human genes and genetic disorders, has been used in the low- and middle-income countries largely as a tool for improving clinical care, teaching genetics and genomics, and for clinical and research analysis of next-generation sequencing. By facilitating free access to curated, updated, and comprehensive information in genetics and genomics, OMIM has led to better clinical care and research advancement in countries where clinicians and researchers in private or public hospitals and universities cannot afford to pay for other resources including journal subscriptions.
