GeneCards Comments From Users
professor from Germany:
Excellent database. My favorite for research, teaching, and diagnostics.
An outstanding tool, like a legendary Swiss army knife
researcher from Scotland:
Great resource, my first port of call when I come across a gene I know nothing about (which is quite often)
researcher from California:
I'd like to acknowledge that GeneALaCart is a wonderful resource for the community
researcher from Idaho:
We use this database often to investigate our microarray results. It is absolutely wonderful!
hish school student: i love the wide variety of results given for this
particular gene abnormality. I never knew there were so many different
types of colorblindness. I thought there was only total color
blindness, but some types only affect 1 or 2 cone receptors. Thanks
for being so resourceful.
postdoc from Belgium: This is a very useful tool when you are interested in a
specific gene because you can find, in a single page, informations
about siRNA or antibody availability. Thanks a lot.
MD from Brazil: I am a public medical geneticist. I thank you for your
site about gene diseases. It is very important for us, especialy
in a development country like Brazil where the access to new
tecnology and research is rare.
cell biologist from the UK: An admirable website with many useful resources!
MD from the UK:
A fascinating variety of freely available detailed information about individual genes, the proteins that they encode and links to
specific data in many other databases...
family nurse practitioner from Ohio: Wonderful resource!
medical scientist: Handy website that gives concise information.
My molecular and structural paper assignments all seem so
daunting until I found your website! Thanks!
researcher from a medical school in NY: Thank you for providing an excellent time-saving service. The researchers, and certainly myself, applaud your efforts
student from Canada: Just wanted to say thank you! This website is simply
graduate assistant from Minnesota:
I really appreciate the section that lists all of the
relevant journal artices for ... I have found it quite useful for
locating a wide range of papers that will be used for my research.
researcher from center in the UK:
Love the site, use it frequently
undergraduate from NY: This is an excellent site and it helped me with my
homework. It provides a lot of useful information for the study of
PHD student from Geneva: i'm checking the function of proteins from a siRNA screening and that
will let me save a lot of time.
researcher from California:
I would like to increase my use of GeneAlaCart. I really enjoy using your tool.
professor from Boston: Love it! The students in my molecular biology class need to learn to use it for their assignments.
researcher from Utah: I like that so much data about one gene can be found in one place. i like the search feature.
professor from Missouri: I am a professor of Animal Science.
I was very glad to find your genealacart tool. It is EXACTLY what I have been looking for.
student from India: it makes my phd work very effective
researcher from children's research hospital in Tennessee:
Thanks for taking the time to explain how the system works. Also, thanks for GeneCards. It is an extremely useful site!
professor from Germany: I never want to miss this excellent dataset
MD PHD from Texas: Thanks for putting together GeneCards, it is the most complete and up-to-date source of annotation that I have found.
somebody from hospital in NY: I like the database very much and it is very useful to get a quick idea of the function, other names and localization of a protein. Great Job!
researcher from UK: Haven't worked my way through everything on your site, but what I have seen is great.
graduate student from India: Respected sir, currently I am doing my M.Sc bioinformatics...I got some rare information
about... it is useful for my PG project. Thanking you sir
student from Israel: Metzuyan!!!!!
researcher form institute in Wisconsin: : GeneCards is the first site i go to in order to orient my understanding of a new gene, and especially to identify its know aliases
researcher from Singapore: Hey keep up the good work! You guys are my number one choice!
researcher from South Africa: Difficult to choose a "Favorite" - I use many of the GeneCards functions!
researcher from a pharmeceutical company:
GeneCards pulls together the most complete picture of proteins and enzymes in a well-linked and usable format of any of the
cancer research institute in UK: fantastic web to introduce myself to new targets, genes and have a good overview of
reagents availability, potential as a subject of study.
professor of structural biology in Israel:
I have had GeneCards open in front of me continuously for 2 days (and nights)
as I go through our very first microarray data and try to figure out which end is up.
It is so useful!
bioinformatician from Saudi Arabia:
I see that GeneCards
sets a true example of efficient databases and technology integrations.
Moreover, the access to vendors links is just so
precious, both as a business model strategy and user-guidance.
professor of human genetics from Luisiana:
The GeneCards suite has been extremely helpful in a difficult microarray expression analysis. It has features that two other programs (one very expensive) lack.
Thank you so much for your great and friendly site!
mass spectronomy researcher from Colorado:
Through your help and the GeneCards and GeneTides databases, almost 2/3 of my previously unidentified probesets could be identified. Thanks very much!!
researcher from Florida: THANK YOU AND MAY GOD BLESS YOUR GLORIOUS INSTITUTION
