How We Curate OMIM: It’s Not as Easy as You Think
How We Curate OMIM: It’s Not as Easy as You Think
by Cody Sarrazin
Product Quality Scientist

Relating human phenotypes to genotypes is the name of the game with OMIM, and as their website says, “is intended for use primarily by physicians and other professionals concerned with genetic disorders, by genetics researchers, and by advanced students in science and medicine.” The Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (or OMIM) was originally created by Dr. Victor A. McKusick in the 60s as a catalog called the Mendelian Inheritance in Man (MIM), but the ‘O’ was added in 1985 when the catalog was put online with the help of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine which still edits and adds to the catalog today.

GWAS analysis of QTL for resistance against Edwardsiella ictaluri in F2 interspecific hybrid catfish

Register for the webcast

Infectious diseases pose significant threats to the catfish industry. Enteric septicemia of catfish (ESC) caused by Edwardsiella ictaluri is the most devastating disease for catfish aquaculture, causing huge economic losses annually. Channel catfish and blue catfish exhibit great contrast in resistance against ESC, with blue catfish being highly resistant. As such, the interspecific hybrid backcross progenies provide an ideal system for the analysis of resistance QTL. In this study, we conducted GWAS analysis to locate genomic regions associated with ESC resistance by selectively genotyping F2 backcross families with the catfish 690K SNP arrays.
