Welcome to Leukemia Gene Database
A database of Leukemia genes (LeGenD) is developed to help the Biological and Medical Sciences community to easily access all information on the genes that are involved in Leukemia. The information about these genes is stored in a simple semi-structured database and can be accessed freely through a WWW interface. The data in LeGenD is extracted from the published biomedical research literature. These are categorically organized and stored as a collection of ‘facts’. These facts are categorized under topics like cell location, DNA binding, DNA structure, gene frequency, protein binding and structure, pathway and various other clinical and biological relevant information. Each fact is linked to the original PubMed citation and depending on the available information each gene is also linked to OMIM, CGAP, GeneCards databases. All the Leukemia genes can be viewed based on chromosome number or alphabetical order of gene or by the leukemia type, the key word search system will be added soon.
Leukemia gene database contains information about 70 genes that are responsible for Leukemia along with their gene characteristics. This database is built similar to Oral and Breast cancer gene database.
