[Molecular structure of Hb Thionville]

Welcome to the Globin Gene Server

This site provides data and tools for studying the function of DNA sequences, with an emphasis on those involved in the production of hemoglobin. It includes information about naturally-occurring human hemoglobin mutations and their effects, experimental data related to the regulation of the beta-like globin gene cluster, and software tools for comparing sequences with one another to discover regions that are likely to play significant roles.
