IthaGenes

Welcome to the IthaGenes homepage

IthaGenes is an interactive archive of all sequence variations affecting haemoglobin disorders, including the globin loci and disease modifiers and polymorphisms with relevance for clinical diagnosis. IthaGenes stores and organizes phenotype, epidemiology, HPLC data, as well as related publications and external links, while embedding the NCBI sequence viewer in the website for detailed graphical representation of each variation.

IthaGenes currently stores 2689 variations in 232 genes, regulatory sequences or intergenic regions
