Globin Gene Server

Globin Gene Server

This site is designed for researchers in the field of gene regulation or the molecular biology of hemoglobin. However, the access to lots of real research data could be used for some interesting assignments for students. the site does have some assignments for a bioinformatics course. From the authors description, "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."
