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.

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.
More information on asthma and allergy is available from David Duffy's QIMR homepage, CSGA Collaborative Study on the Genetics of Asthma (CSGA), American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI), Epidemiological study on the genetics and environment of asthma, bronchial hyperresponsiveness and atopy (EGEA).
