AudioGene is a tool that uses several well-known machine learning methods to predict the genetic cause of hearing loss based on audiometric data.

The Deafness Variation Database provides a comprehensive guide to genetic variation in genes associated with deafness. It includes all known genetic variants present in any gene that is included on OtoSCOPE®.

The OtoProtein project combines the expertise of researchers from the Molecular Otolaryngology & Renal Research Laboratories and the Michael Schnieders Laboratory at the University of Iowa to analyze proteins and molecules implicated in hearing loss.

The Hereditary Hearing Loss Homepage provides an up-to-date overview of all known gene localizations and identifications for monogenic nonsyndromic hearing loss as an aid to researchers and clinicians working on the human genetics of deafness.

The Connexin-Deafness provides information on the role of connexins in non-syndromic and syndromic hearing loss. The database lists mutations in GJB2, GJB3, GJB6, and GJA1.

The WFS1 Gene Mutation and Polymorphism Database is maintained by scientists in the Kresge Hearing Research Institute. WFS1 mutations that cause non-syndromic low frequency sensorineural hearing loss and DIDMOAD (diabetes insipidus, diabetes mellitus, optic atrophy and deafness) are listed.
