Hello everyone,

does anyone of you know, if there is a link between the EnsemblDB and the OMIM-DB? In special a link between the EnsemblIDs (ENST, ENSP, ENSG) and a OMIM-ID would be nice. At the this point I would use the gene symbols. But I am a bit afraid if they are congruent in both databases. Like e.g. "NKX3-1", "NKX3.1" etc.

Maybe you've an idea or a hint.

Cheers.

𝄆 If you want to get mappings from a database like Ensembl , look at BioMart 𝄇

On the Attributes / External References you find: MIM Morbid Accession, MIM Morbid Description, MIM Gene Accession, MIM Gene Description

Perfect, did not recordnis that it's just called MIM instead of OMIM.

Go to the HUGO consortium and download their list of genes. It provides a link between old and new gene names

http://www.genenames.org/cgi-bin/hgnc_stats.pl

Example:

HGNC:7838       NKX3-1  NK3 homeobox 1  Approved        NKX3A   NKX3.1, BAPX2   8p21.2

This is kinda temporary solution. I am looking for an explicit link between those DBs. This would also blow up my SQL queries.
