MyGene2 is an information sharing resource for families, clinicians and researchers. Families can find others with the same condition or gene mutations. Clinicians can use MyGene2 to share information about patients with a variant of unknown significance, a novel candidate gene, or a rare known causal variant. Researchers can identify and share information with other researchers, clinicians, or families directly.

ClinGen Logo

Founded in 2013 by the National Human Genome Research Institute, ClinGen is a collaborative effort involving three grants, nine principal investigators and over 1,700 contributors from more than 40 countries. The National Brain Gene Registry collaborates closely with ClinGen.

GenomeConnect Logo

Genome Connect
GenomeConnect is an online registry associated with ClinGen for users interested in sharing de-identified genetic and health information to improve understanding of genetics and health. Registry participants can also connect with other individuals and families or learn about other research opportunities and, potentially, receive updates about their genetic testing results. is a database of privately- and publicly-funded clinical studies conducted around the world.

National Society of Genetic Counselors Directory
Their Find a Genetic Counselor Directory offers access to over 3,300 genetic counselors in the US and Canada.

The Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man
(OMIM) database is a comprehensive, authoritative compendium of human genes and genetic phenotypes. Each of the genes in the National Brain Gene Registry is catalogued there. The full-text, referenced overviews in OMIM contain information on all known mendelian disorders and over 16,000 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 is housed at the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine,
