Welcome to MelGene (version 2.0)

The MelGene database provides a comprehensive and regularly updated field synopsis and meta-analysis of all published genetic association studies performed in Cutaneous Melanoma (CM).

In addition, dozens of up-to-date meta-analyses are available for all eligible polymorphisms with sufficient data. For details, see Methods.
