Announcing BioGene - a Mobile Web Browser Application

This is to announce BioGene, a free application for mobile web browsers to quickly look up gene function.

The Computational Biology Center at MSKCC (cBio) has recently released BioGene, an application for mobile web browsers, with primary content from NCBI's (US National Center for Biotechnology Information) Entrez search engines.  BioGene allows you to quickly and easily access gene information from Entrez.  For example, should you see a reference to "NCOA3" in a lecture presentation, within moments you can have basic and reasonably up-to-date information about the function of this gene at your fingertips on your smartphone; including a list of references with abstracts (from GeneRIFs).

We are making BioGene available to the public free of charge to promote its use in scientific research and lecture rooms.

You can access BioGene from your iPhone, Android, or Blackberry OS device by visiting the following link: http://cbio.mskcc.org/biogene/
You can also continue to use BioGene for iOS which is available for download via the App Store:

More information at: http://cbio.mskcc.org/tools/biogene/mobile.html

We would appreciate feedback including ideas for additional features to be incorporated in future versions.  To do so, please send email to biogene@cbio.mskcc.org.

BioGene has been fun to develop and has already had a positive impact on our research.

We invite you to explore the function of genes of interest instantly and from anywhere.

Thanks,

Benjamin Gross, Nathan Marks, and Chris Sander
