The Drug-Gene Interaction Database (DGIdb, [www.dgidb.org]) is a web resource that provides information on drug-gene interactions and druggable genes from various sources including publications, databases, and other web-based sources in one resource. These drug, gene, and interaction claims are normalized and grouped to identify aliases, merge concepts, and reduce redundancy. The information contained in this resource is available to users through a straightforward search interface, an application programming interface (API), and TSV data downloads. DGIdb 4.0 is the latest major update of this database. Seven new sources have been added, bringing the total number of sources included to 41. Of the previously aggregated sources, 15 have been updated. DGIdb 4.0 also includes improvements to the process of drug normalization and grouping of imported sources. Other notable updates include further development of automatic jobs for routine data updates, more sophisticated query scores for interaction search results, extensive manual curation of interaction source link outs, and the inclusion of interaction directionality. A major focus of this update was integration with crowd-sourced efforts, including leveraging the curation activities of Drug Target Commons, using Wikidata to facilitate term normalization, and integrating into NDEx for producing network representations. ### Competing Interest Statement The authors have declared no competing interest. : http://www.dgidb.org
