View gene information by double clicking a gene name or accession on any webpage.

Image from store Gene Info
Description from store Double click on a gene name or supported accession to retrieve information about it and links to related resources. Information can be displayed as a detailed report or as a minimal tooltip with links to outside resources. The information displayed can be customized via the extension's popup menu. Information is from UniProt, BioGRID, Compartments subcellular localization database, Gene Ontology Consortium, HGNC, Human Protein Atlas, IntAct, OMIM, Pfam, ProteomicsDB and Reactome. Support is provided for human and model organism genes. IMPORTANT: - reports will not open in tabs that were open prior to installation. After installing, reload any open tabs or restart Chrome.

  • (2020-10-28) Jon Hallsteinn Hallsson: I was not entirely sure at first, but this turns out to be a very convenient and most useful addtion to Chrome.
  • (2020-07-15) Varga Julia: One of the most useful tools for biology-related research. No more copy-paste and mapping of individual protein names to different databases. And it works perfectly.
  • (2019-05-17) yeogha yoon: This might be the single best Chrome extension I've had. For a computational biologist especially, it's a must have.
  • (2019-03-12) John Ouyang: Awesome tool for people working in biology in genomics
  • (2019-01-28) Karen Colwill: A real time-saver. Being able to find curated information on a gene or protein of interest without leaving a web-page is super useful and this tool could easily become a 'must-have' for molecular and cellular biologists.
  • (2019-01-09) Ji-Young Youn: Amazing - very useful for molecular biologists! This tool allows you to obtain the essence of curated literature associated with the gene or protein you query WITHIN the web interface. You can quickly look up information by one click without having to leave your current tab or window.
  • (2019-01-09) Reuben Samson: Excellent Tool and very helpful!

  • (2019-02-19, v:0.7.0) Gene name selection idea
    Just downloaded this extension after Dr. Gingras plugged it at a UCSF mass spec symposium, and I love it. One possible change that would overcome the need to disable the extension to ignore other double-clicks or drags would be to add the option for a keyboard shortcut that, when coupled to the drag function, activates a search of the highlighted gene name or ID.
