The Blood Group Antigen Gene Mutation Database (BGMUT) was set up under the aegis of the Human Genome Variation Society (HGVS) in 1999. It documents variations in genes that encode antigens for human blood groups. It thus is a locus-specific mutation database (LSDB) that covers multiple genes. The database was compiled and has been curated by Olga O. Blumenfeld, PhD, Department of Biochemistry, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, NY, and Santosh K. Patnaik, MD, PhD, Department of Thoracic Surgery, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo NY. In 2006, this website moved to the NCBI to become part of dbRBC where it has been under the direction and additional curatorship of Wolfgang Helmberg, MD, Department of Serology and Transfusion Medicine, Medical University of Graz, Austria. Many who are experts in the study of blood group systems have contributed to the development of this database by providing, among other things, information on the systems and the alleles. In addition to documenting genetic variations, this site also provides information on the blood group systems, the genes that encode them, the serological phenotypes, etc. Blood group systems for which genes or genetic variations have yet to be identified are also documented. For some systems, information on non-human orthologous genes is also made available. ... [Information of the supplier]
Based on the mapping of the human genome and the development of information databases, a broad description of genes transcribed in blood cells is now known. Hembase was developed to provide worldwide access to those genetic-based studies performed by scientists in the Molecular Biology and Genetics Section, Molecular Medicine Branch, Division of Intramural Research, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). This project represents the shared goal of several individuals and groups (credits) interested in disseminating genomic information on the World Wide Web. ... [Information of the supplier]
