HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee

HGNC is the only worldwide authority assigning standardised human gene symbols and names. Its key goals are to provide unique standardised nomenclature for every human gene; to ensure this information is freely available, widely disseminated and universally used; and to coordinate the expansion and utilisation of this nomenclature across vertebrates.
