Introduction

There are many different Online Mendelian Inheritence in Man (OMIM) reference materials used in UNSW Embryology. Selected OMIM references can also be found on the Abnormalities (page 2) of each section of Notes and there are also search buttons that will perform searches using specific term(s) of external databases. Some search results will allow access to the full original document, while others may require a Journal subscription to access the full document.

Students when referencing specific materials should as much as possible cite the original Research article and not Review articles. When wanting to give a broad overview or summaries of the field, the Review articles should be cited (and indicated as "reviews"). Students should also avoid direct text cut and paste and if absolutely necessary should place in "quotation marks" citing the original reference.

About OMIM "Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man OMIM is a comprehensive, authoritative, and timely compendium of human genes and genetic phenotypes. The full-text, referenced overviews in OMIM contain information on all known mendelian disorders and over 12,000 genes. OMIM focuses on the relationship between phenotype and genotype. It is updated daily, and the entries contain copious links to other genetics resources." OMIM

1999 OMIM Pages

In 1999 I searched the Online Mendelian Inheritence in Man (OMIM) database and selected a small number of references for each topic. These earlier searches are now slightly out of date, but should still be a good starting point for those interested in the topics.

These pages retain the original earlier site (Version 3) page layout.
