|The Pharmacogenetics and Pharmacogenomics Knowledge Base|
PharmGKB is a publicly available Internet research tool developed by Stanford University with funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and is part of the NIH Pharmacogenetics Research Network (PGRN), a nationwide collaborative research consortium. Its aim is to aid researchers in understanding how genetic variation among individuals contributes to differences in reactions to drugs.
The PharmGKB database is a central repository for genetic and clinical information about people who have participated in research studies at various medical centers in the PGRN. In addition, genomic data, molecular and cellular phenotype data, and clinical phenotype data are accepted from the scientific community at large.
