Fwd: OMIM tracks removed from UCSC table Database (hg18..)

But apparenbtly similar files can be obtained from OMIM themselves (after filling request!), please read below.
Fwd: please follow footer link


Hello, Jorge,

Thanks for your kind words about our parsing of OMIM data.

Our agreement with OMIM does not include allowing our users
to download their content from the ucsc site, so we no longer
allow access to OMIM data via download. We are working with
OMIM to make the tables we have created available to users via
the OMIM site. Please contact OMIM directly (via omim.org)
about gaining access to the data. We hope to have our filtered
content back into their hands in a few weeks.

best wishes,
