Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a very common endocrine disorder reported in women worldwide and is one of the major causes of female subfertility/infertility.  Numerous genes, SNPs and diseases are known to be associated with PCOS.

PCOSKB is a manually curated knowledgebase on PCOS. PCOS-related information available through scientific literature is cross-linked with molecular, biochemical and clinical databases. Information on associated genes, SNPs, diseases, gene ontologies and pathways along with supporting reference literature is collated and integrated in PCOSKB. PCOSKB will be useful for scientists and clinicians. The database currently holds information on 241 genes associated with PCOS.
