OMIM data in NxClinical

OMIM (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man) is a comprehensive database consisting of human genes and genetic phenotypes associated with Mendelian disorders. The database is used by genetic labs to assist in interpretation. It is maintained by Johns Hopkins University and is available freely via the online GUI for personal, educational, or research use but other uses, usage by certain types of organizations, as well as downloading or incorporating with products does carry licensing fees.
