The HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee is responsible for approving unique symbols and names for human loci, including protein coding genes, ncRNA genes and pseudogenes, to allow unambiguous scientific communication. Since 2007 it has been based at EMBL European Bioinformatics Institute under the leadership of Dr Elspeth Bruford. Dr Bruford and several key members of the HGNC team are members of the University of Cambridge Department of Haematology.
