REHOVOT, Israel--The Weizmann Institute of Science's Genome Center and Bioinformatics Unit announced the release of version 2.8 of GeneCards last month. The database that catalogs human genes, their products, and their involvement in diseases was developed by Weizmann researchers Michael Rebhan, Liora Yaar, Vered Chalifa-Caspi, Marilyn Safran, Hershel Safer, Jaime Prilusky, and Doron Lancet. It offers information about the functions of all human genes with an approved symbol, as well as selected others. The database, featuring a navigation support system that guides users to information, is especially useful for those who are searching for information about large sets of genes or proteins, including scientists working in functional genomics and proteomics, according to the institute. Version 2.8 includes data for 8,100 human genes.
