Prototype GDB and OMIM on PC CD-ROM (January 1995 version)
A new version of the prototype PC CD-ROM containing GDB data integrated with
the text of McKusick's "Mendelian Inheritance in Man" (OMIM) and mouse genome
data from Jackson Labs is now available. The new version includes GDB and OMIM
data downloaded at the beginning of 1995 and over 300 pictures. This product
was developed by the Human Genome Data Base at Johns Hopkins University,
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center/UCLA, and Jackson Labs Informatics.
