Table of Contents
- Statistics & files
- Fields within the tsv and JSON files
The Statistics & downloads page contains tables with breakdown statistics by locus group and locus type of the number of approved symbol reports we have within the database. The tables also contain icons shown below, which enable users to download the data in text (tsv) or JSON format, or link to our custom download application for the chosen dataset. Genes annotated on alternative loci included in the GRC Reference Assembly are shown separately in the second table.
The icons are as follows:
- Tab delimited text file. Multple valued fields are double quoted and delimited by | within the quotes. The format of the file should be easily viewable within a spreadsheet application such as excel.
- JSON text file (no indentation or white space). Intended for loading into a JSON parser within a script or program
- Link to the Custom downloads page for the locus type/group where users can specify exactly what data they wish to download.
Above the tables there is a karyotype image; clicking on a specific chromosome will change the table statistics to show the data for the selected chromosome.
Beneath the tables we also have text (tsv) and JSON files for our complete HGNC dataset, our gene families dataset and our locus specific database links set.
HGNC ID. A unique ID created by the HGNC for every approved symbol.
The HGNC approved gene symbol. Equates to the "APPROVED SYMBOL" field within the gene symbol report.
HGNC approved name for the gene. Equates to the "APPROVED NAME" field within the gene symbol report.
A group name for a set of related locus types as defined by the HGNC (e.g. non-coding RNA).
The locus type as defined by the HGNC (e.g. RNA, transfer).
Status of the symbol report, which can be either "Approved" or "Entry Withdrawn".
Cytogenetic location of the gene (e.g. 2q34).
Same as "location" but single digit chromosomes are prefixed with a 0 enabling them to be sorted in correct numerical order (e.g. 02q34).
Other symbols used to refer to this gene as seen in the "SYNONYMS" field in the symbol report.
Other names used to refer to this gene as seen in the "SYNONYMS" field in the gene symbol report.
Symbols previously approved by the HGNC for this gene. Equates to the "PREVIOUS SYMBOLS & NAMES" field within the gene symbol report.
Gene names previously approved by the HGNC for this gene. Equates to the "PREVIOUS SYMBOLS & NAMES" field within the gene symbol report.
Name given to a gene family or group the gene has been assigned to. Equates to the "GENE FAMILY" field within the gene symbol report.
ID used to designate a gene family or group the gene has been assigned to.
The date the entry was first approved.
The date the gene symbol was last changed.
The date the gene name was last changed.
Date the entry was last modified.
International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (GenBank, ENA and DDBJ) accession number(s). Found within the "NUCLEOTIDE SEQUENCES" section of the gene symbol report.
The name of the Locus Specific Mutation Database and URL for the gene separated by a | character, e.g. Mutations of the ATP-binding Cassette Transporter Retina|http://www.retina-international.org/files/sci-news/abcrmut.htm
Symbol used within the Catalogue of somatic mutations in cancer for the gene.
Symbol used to link to the SLC tables database at bioparadigms.org for the gene

ID used to link to the Human KZNF Gene Catalog
ID to link to the Mamit-tRNA database
Symbol used within the Human Cell Differentiation Molecule database for the gene
ID used to link to the Human Intermediate Filament Database
