GeneReviews, an international point-of-care resource for busy clinicians, provides clinically relevant and medically actionable information for inherited conditions in a standardized journal-style format, covering diagnosis, management, and genetic counseling for patients and their families. Each chapter in GeneReviews is written by one or more experts on the specific condition or disease and goes through a rigorous editing and peer review process before being published online.

GeneReviews currently comprises 664 chapters.

The two general formats for GeneReviews are: chapters focused on a single gene or phenotype (~95%) and overviews summarizing genetic causes of common conditions (e.g., deafness and hearing loss, Alzheimer disease) (~5%).

To ensure continuing relevant and medically actionable content, each GeneReviews chapter is updated every two to four years (or as needed) by the author(s) in a formal and comprehensive process curated by the GeneReviews editors. Additional revisions may occur more frequently as needed to reflect significant changes in clinically relevant information.

Genetic counseling and testing terms and concepts used in GeneReviews are hyperlinked to definitions in the GeneReviews Glossary.

GeneReviews are indexed in PubMed.
