MedGen is a free, comprehensive resource for one-stop access to essential information on phenotypic health topics related to medical genetics as collected from established high-quality sources. It integrates terminology from multiple primary ontologies (or nomenclatures) to facilitate standardization and more accurate results from search queries.

Today, November 8, National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) celebrates the second annual Genetic Counselor Awareness Day. At NCBI, we’ve been working hard to provide and improve resources, such as MedGen, Genetic Testing Registry (GTR), ClinVar, and Medical Genetics Summaries (MGS), to help genetic counselors.
Next week, NCBI staff will be at the NSGC 2018 conference in Atlanta, GA. While there, you can chat in person with us at booth #700 to learn about our medical genetics resources and pick up helpful material. We’d also love to hear any other questions or feedback to help support you.
