The Audiological and Genetic Database (AudGenDB)
The Audiological and Genetic Database (AudGenDB) is a medical and research database resource that supports qualified researchers studying pediatric hearing health. The database draws information from several sources, including electronic health records, audiological instruments, radiological imagery, clinical genetics results, and genomics research records, and makes them accessible to researchers using a powerful, intuitive, web-based query interface. By establishing AudGenDB, researchers and clinicians can more effectively address how underlying genetic and environmental factors influence the effectiveness and outcome of patient-directed therapies and interventions.
