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: When a search of Gene returns more than one result, they are displayed by default in the new Tabular display option (Figure 2). This format replaces the Summary display as the default format for searches and exposes more data in a compact, structured manner. Reviewing a long list of search results is facilitated by having comparable content aligned. Each row of the Tabular display includes the preferred gene symbol and GeneID, the Description (including the complete gene name and species), the location on a genomic RefSeq for the reference assembly, unofficial symbols and for human only, the Mendelian Inheritance in Man (MIM) number for the gene. The symbol in the Name/GeneID column links to the Full Report display. The Summary format is still available using the Display settings menu.
