Databases and Resources

  • - describes the frequencies of alleles in different populations, at various polymorphic regions with Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics.
  • American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) - distribution of cells and cultures throughout Europe.
  • dbMHC - provides an open, publicly accessible platform for DNA, and clinical data related to the human Major Histocompatibilty Complex (MHC).
  • European Collection of Animal Cell Cultures (ECACC) - collection of authenticated cell cultures.
  • ESTDAB - provides a service enabling investigators to search online for HLA typed, immunologically characterised tumour cells as part of the European Commission Fifth Framework Infrastructures Program.
  • HLA Dictionary - presents the serologic equivalents of HLA-A, -B, -C, -DRB1, -DRB3, -DRB4, -DRB5 and -DQB1 alleles and is an update of the one published in 2001. The data summarises equivalents obtained by the WHO Nomenclature Committee for Factors of the HLA System, the International Cell Exchange (UCLA), the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), the 13th International Histocompatibilty Workshop.
  • HLA FactsBook - presents up-to-date and comprehensive information on the HLA genes in a manner that is accessible to both beginner and expert alike. The focus of the book is on the polymorphic HLA genes (HLA-A, B, C, DP, DQ, and DR) that are typed for in clinical HLA laboratories.
  • HLA Nomenclature Reports - The reports compiled by the WHO Nomenclature Committee for Factors of the HLA System are available from the HLA Informatics Group pages at the Anthony Nolan Research Institute.
  • The IMGT/HLA Database- provides a specialist databases for sequences of the human major histocompatibility complex (HLA) and includes the official sequences for the WHO HLA Nomenclature Committee For Factors of the HLA System.
  • The IMGT/LIGM Database - a comprehensive database of Ig and TcR from human and other vertebrates, with translation for fully annotated sequences.
  • The Immuno Polymorphism Database (IPD) - was developed in 2003 to provide a centralised system for the study of polymorphism in genes of the immune system currently covering non-human mhc sequences, KIR Sequences and access to the ESTDAB Database.
  • SYFPEITHI - contains information on peptide sequences, anchor positions, MHC specificity, source proteins, source organisms, publication references.
