We sincerely thank the George Hicks Foundation for their generous support of the curation of the InSiGHT database from 2010 to 2012. We are grateful for the ongoing funding for curation which is provided by the Royal Melbourne Hospital foundation.
NOTE: this database was initiated by merging entries from the MMR, InSiGHT and MMRUV databases (for links see the gene homepage). We want to gratefully acknowledge Amanda Dohey (Woods laboratory) to get this work done. We also want to thank Krista Mahoney (until 2011) and Johan den Dunnen (until 2018) for helping to curate the database.
