The DermaGene database aims to provide a freely accessible comprehensive repository of the Dermatosis and the associated Genes & Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNPs) along with its supporting evidence. Each entry in this database describes the Disease, its genes, the Single Nucleotide Polymorphism associated with diseases, the Pub Med IDs of texts referred, the frequency of disease occurrence, the population ethnicity where it exists and the Disease Class. The database as of now houses 114 unique diseases, as described by 244 different genes and the 871 associated SNPs.
Our database aims to provide a holistic picture of the various dermatological disorders, which may facilitate researchers in identifying dermatosis causation, in addition to providing insights into previously undiscovered disease-gene & disease-SNP relationships. To date, no such systematic effort has been made to provide a compilation of data on genetic variants involved in Dermatological disorders, which makes DermaGene a unique database for the benefit of clinicians and researchers.
