Key Features:

  • Look up genes by symbol or description.
  • Gene indexes for many mammals, plants, invertebrates, and bacteria.
  • Link to gene info on websites.
  • Download files for offline use. (.pdf, .mp3, .m4v, .doc, .ppt, .xls )
  • transfer files via open in, email, or iTunes file sharing
  • View RSS feeds for journals
  • Query GeneRIF interactions, COSMIC mutations, and CNV data for cell lines.
  • Does not require a network connection for local databases.
  • View and search PubMed in table view.


GeneIndex provides a convenient and portable way to lookup gene symbols while at a seminar, conference, or lab meeting. Genes are linked to common life science websites such as NCBI, COSMIC, KEGG, PubMed, SymAtlas, UCSC genome browser, Pathway Commons, Genatlas, Wikipedia, HUGO, and OMIM. GeneRIF gene interactions can also be queried.

  • Keep current on the scientific literature. GeneIndex includes a RSS reader and web browser for browsing popular journals like Nature, Science, and Cell. You can also add your own RSS feeds. PDFs and podcasts can be saved as files that you can view on the device or email as attachments.
  • Examine the status of genes in common cell lines. A subset of COSMIC containing cell lines can be queried for mutations. Copy Number Variation (CNV) plots from cell lines profiled by GSK and Sanger are also linked to genes.

Genome Voyager: iPad

Gain first hand experience identifying the genomic basis of disease by analyzing cases with whole genome sequencing data that have been published for research and learning purposes.

  • Visualize whole human genome sequencing data including small variations, copy number variations (CNVs), and loss of heterozygosity (LOH) events
  • Quickly find variants of interest by filtering variants based on associated genes, functional impact, allele frequency in data sets, and cross-references with various genomic databases.
  • Collaborate on variant assessments with other researchers and academics to improve knowledge of both pathogenic and benign variants.
    To use Genome Voyager, users must join Genome Voyager’s community of researchers and academics. Visit http://voyager.completegenomics.com to signup.

YeastGenome: iPhone/iPad

Use YeastGenome to quickly find fundamental information about Saccharomyces cerevisae genes and chromosomal features. Search gene names, gene descriptions or browse the database to find information about your favorite gene, as well as more detailed information such as Gene Ontology, mutant phenotype, and protein and genetic interaction data.
YeastGenome contains the latest from the Saccharomyces Genome Database (www.yeastgenome.org) in an on bound app database. As more detailed information is presented the app switches to web services access to SGD, and then for even more details provides complete information via hyperlinks to the appropriate SGD database pages.

Key features:

  • Search using gene name or keywords
  • Browse by feature type
  • Save your favorite features
  • Can be used in airplane mode
  • Email information about features to collaborators

What's New in Version 1.8.1

  • This update is required to provide continued functionality. Some of the data provided by this app accesses the SGD service using a method that is changing in May 2013. This version provides changes to allow access to continue. The on board database of yeast gene information has also been updated to March 2013.

SNPdbe: iPhone/iPad

SNPdbe — SNP database of effects, with predictions of computationally annotated functional impacts of SNPs. Database entries represent nsSNPs in dbSNP and 1000 Genomes collection, as well as variants from UniProt and PMD. SAASs come from >2600 organisms; ‘human’ being the most prevalent. The impact of each SAAS on protein function is predicted using the SNAP and SIFT algorithms and augmented with experimentally derived function/structure information and disease associations from PMD, OMIM and UniProt.

TimeTree: iPhone/iPad

TimeTree is a public knowledge-base for information on the evolutionary timescale of life. This application allows easy exploration of the thousands of divergence times among organisms in the scientific literature. A tree-based (hierarchical) system is used to identify all published molecular time estimates bearing on the divergence of two chosen organisms, such as species, compute summary statistics, and present the results. Names of two taxa to be compared are entered in the search window and the results are presented on a set of self-explanatory tabs.

  • TimeTree 3.0 was released September 27, 2011 with new data from 1209 studies including 25342 time nodes. We will be adding more data in the future as it comes in from researchers.
  • TimeTree is jointly directed by Blair Hedges (Pennsylvania State University) and Sudhir Kumar (Arizona State University). This project has been supported, in part, by grants from the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, NASA Astrobiology Institute, and Science Foundation of Arizona.

GeneGroove: iPhone/iPad

GeneGroove is the first application to create a music melody from DTC-Genomics data. If you own 23andMe (Mountain View, CA) personal genomic results, GeneGroove will create for you a unique melody intimately based on your 23andMe genome informations. The music in you.

  • After uploading your 23andMe raw data onto your iPhone via iTunes, GeneGroove will analyze your genome informations and generate a unique identifier key. This key, called the GeNumber, will embed the uniqueness of your genome data while keeping your privacy safe, and will be used by GeneGroove to generate your music melody.
  • The GeNumber doesn't contain anymore genomic information but it is based on your genome and it is unique, it is yours. It will be used in upcoming Portable Genomics applications to mix and remix music, manipulate sounds and share your art with your friends and family.
