a browser extension that allows for in-text referencing of gene symbols

What It Is

Genotify was written in collaboration with Jared Andrews, a PhD candidate at Washington University in St. Louis. It’s a browser extension that addresses an annoyance for clinicians and researchers by allowing for in-text referencing of gene symbols. This saves users the hassle of looking up a gene just to get a basic description of what it does. By simply highlighting a gene symbol, a small blurb describing its function will appear.

The functions are pulled from the UniProtKB database.

See it in action here. Source code available on Github.


“Very good tool!”
