Content

The broad-ranging Asthma and Allergy Gene Database covers many aspects of asthma and allergy genetics, including linkage data, gene expression data and gene therapy trials. The database also contains details of asthma- and allergy-related information from studies in mouse. The information held is derived from all published full-length articles on these topics in the current literature. Registered users can enter and annotate data online.

Worst feature

The registration can be problematic. If you have the same name as someone already registered you won't be allowed to join in your own name.
