Gene: a gene-centered information resource at NCBI.
Bottom Line: Additional content is integrated based on the genomic location and RefSeq transcript and protein sequence data.The content of a Gene record represents the integration of curation and automated processing from RefSeq, collaborating model organism databases, consortia such as Gene Ontology, and other databases within NCBI.Records in Gene are assigned unique, tracked integers as identifiers.

Mentions: The Full Report display option is the default setting for an individual Gene record (Figure 1). It integrates text, graphics, keywords and links to other databases, providing the entry point where significant information about a gene can be readily retrieved. The report itself is divided into collapsible sections beginning with the Summary, which includes nomenclature, taxonomic information, a list of other database identifiers and RefSeq status. The right sidebar includes a Table of contents for easy navigation to different sections of the full report, a Related information section with a comprehensive listing of other NCBI databases or reports that reference the gene, and other links to relevant public resources as well as options for providing feedback and corrections. The entire right hand column can now be hidden using the top right ‘Hide sidebar’ button if horizontal screen real-estate is limited. More detail about many sections of the Full Report is described in the Changes to the Full Report section, below.
