View Gene Families

The following table provides a functional overview of the MSigDB gene sets by categorizing their genes into a small number of carefully chosen "gene families". To categorize the genes in a gene set, use the gene set page or the Investigate Gene Sets page.

Click on a gene family or gene family intersection to retrieve annotations for those genes.

Members of these "gene families" share a common feature such as homology or biochemical activity. They do not necessarily have common origins. For the source of each "gene family" definition, click here.
