The PharmGKB Knowledge Pyramid

Figure 1: The PharmGKB Knowledge Pyramid. A visual representation of the
information available at PharmGKB and the research by the PharmGKB team.

The PharmGKB Knowledge Pyramid (Figure 1) provides users with a visualization of the different types of information found in our knowledge base and, how this information is acquired and integrated together – from the accumulation of gene-drug knowledge at the bottom of the pyramid, to the implementation of pharmacogenomics in the clinic at the top. Each step of the pyramid is described here on our website under the Overview tab.
