|Note on Symbols: Until recently, by agreement of the scientific community, gene symbols have been assigned by the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee. However, OMIM has begun to independently assign phenotype symbols, i.e., disease-specific symbols, which are typographically identical to gene symbols and may overlap with existing or reserved HUGO symbols. Therefore the same symbol may be assigned to more than one gene and OMIM may assign new symbols to existing genes as novel disease associations are reported. RetNet will use HUGO symbols until this conflict is resolved.|
