Information retrieval of human genes

In the last few years, mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets have become an integral part of everyday life, due to their convenience, affordability and functional utility that includes telephone calls, social media, a news source, map location finder, and online banking and shopping.

 

Now, apps are being developed in the field of bioinformatics. GeneStoryTeller, a mobile application for Android platforms, allows users to instantly retrieve information regarding any recorded human gene, derived from eight publicly available databases, as a summary story. Complementary information regarding gene-drugs interactions, functional annotation and disease associations for each selected gene is also provided in the gene story.

 

GeneStoryTeller dynamically updates its content via a network connection but does not require an internet connection to check data.
