HomeThe Moroccan Genetic Disease Database (MGDD) collect and document mutations and frequencies of polymorphisms reported in the Moroccan population. The information in the MGDD allow researchers and clinicians to find mutations associated to a given disease or gene of interest, and they can also find polymorphisms associated with susceptibility to a genetic disease or individual responses to pharmaceutical drugs or environmental factors.
The MGDD enables an easy web-based access to variation data in Moroccan population, the database web interface provides different option to retrieve and submit new data. The initial data catalogued in MGDD were collected from published articles available in PubMed and other online resources.
The MGDD could then provide reference information for mutation screening in genetic research laboratories and in diagnostic services. In adition, polymorphism data will help genetics researchers to design association studies.
