What is MyGene.info
MyGene.info provides simple-to-use REST web services to query/retrieve gene annotation data. It’s designed with simplicity and performance emphasized. You can use it to power a web application which requires querying genes and obtaining common gene annotations. For example, MyGene.info services are used to power BioGPS; or use it in an analysis pipeline to retrieve always up-to-date gene annotations.
