iHOP – Information Hyperlinked over Proteins


A network of concurring genes and proteins extends through the scientific literature touching on phenotypes, pathologies and gene function.
iHOP provides this network as a natural way of accessing millions of PubMed abstracts. By using genes and proteins as hyperlinks between sentences and abstracts, the information in PubMed can be converted into one navigable resource, bringing all advantages of the internet to scientific literature research.

To search by SYMPTOMS to find genes that “match”, type in symptom/s and from the first drop-down list, select Google. If you are only interested in humans, select ‘homo sapiens’ from the second drop-down list. If type of organism is not an issue, leave “all organisms” as is.
