PhenoTips 1.3 Milestone 6 Released

Feb 09 2017

The PhenoTips development team is happy to announce the availability of the PhenoTips 1.3 Milestone 6 release. The highlights of the release are:

Suggested gene panels

PhenoTips now suggests which genes should be investigated, based on the phenotypes describing the patient. This uses the phenotype-to-gene annotations provided by the HPO team, and similar to the OMIM suggestions, offers an interactive interface allowing to select which phenotypes to ignore when looking for matching genes.


Additionally, suggested gene panels can be accessed via a RESTful API that is documented in our developer guide.

Spanish translation of the Human Phenotype Ontology

The Human Phenotype Ontology is actively being translated into multiple languages! With an almost complete translation into Spanish of all the term names, PhenoTips can now also search and display symptoms in Spanish.


The Spanish language can be enabled from the PhenoTips administration:

  1. log in with an administrative account
  2. open the administration by clicking the Administration link in the upper left corner
  3. open the Configuration -> Localization section
  4. either switch the default language to es, to use only Spanish, or switch Multilingual to Yes, and make sure es appears in the list of Supported languages
  5. don't forget to Save the configuration


If you wish to see PhenoTips and the HPO translated in another language, please contribute to PhenoTips translations and HPO translations on CrowdIn.
