Beta-thalessemia In-Lab Exercise

The second half of the Bioinformatics Laboratory will guide you through the same databases your instructor used to study sickle cell anemia only this time you will be looking at beta-thalessemia,a second disease caused by mutation in the beta-globin gene.

  • Each link below will first take you to an information page describing the function and benefits to using each database.
  • After reading through the discription of each database on the following pages, click on the link at the bottom of each page to access a second screen that is split into two frames. The top frame will contain the webpage of the database you are using while the bottom frame will contain step-by-step instructions for using that database.
