bulletOn-line Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) – “This database is a catalog of human genes and genetic disorders authored and edited by Dr. Victor A. McKusick and his colleagues at Johns Hopkins and elsewhere, and developed for the World Wide Web by NCBI, the National Center for Biotechnology Information. The database contains textual information and references. It also contains copious links to MEDLINE and sequence records in the Entrez system, and links to additional related resources at NCBI and elsewhere”

bulletU.K. Biobank Project – Funded by the Medical Research Council, this project aims to be the world’s biggest study of the role of nature and nuture in health and disease. Up to half a million participants aged between 45 and 69 will be involved in the study.
