HGMD Pro vs. Public

What's the difference?

If you currently use the public version of HGMD, there is a lot of content that you are missing.  Not only is the public version of the database three years behind in terms of published mutation entries, it lacks a multitude of search features critical to elucidating clinically significant associations.

HGMD Professional is genomic database with germline mutations for inherited diseases
