Online Metabolic and Molecular Bases of Inherited Disease

OMMBID is an online resource covering the genes and genetic mechanisms underlying human disease states. Based on Metabolic and Molecular Bases of Inherited Disease, first published in 1960, OMMBID is a digital reference tool. OMMBID reviews the metabolic and molecular underpinnings of inherited diseases as well as updates on pathophysiology and treatment.

OMMBID provides access to print version of The Metabolic and Molecular Bases of Inherited Diseases, and includes additional online content like supplemental updates and chapters, including cancer genetics, mitochondrial disease, lysosomal enzyme therapy, along with chapters on missense mutations, misfolding of proteins, and chaperones in the pathogenesis of phenotypes; full-color images such as protein interactions, clinical presentations, and genetic modeling; clinical phenotypes; and a blog with ~10 entries a month on diverse topics.
