  1. aThe set OMIM_all_text included genes for which at least one of query terms was found in any chapter other than that on allelic variants but the latter contained none of the terms. If the query term was also found in the chapter on allelic variants, such gene was assigned to the set OMIM_allelic_variants and excluded from OMIM_all_text
