Human Chromosome-specific databases

Human Genome Map Status - Sanger
This is a graphical representation of the status of sequencing each of the human chromosomes.

Human Genome Sequencing Index (HGSI)
As the Human Genome Project scales up, it becomes more important to have a means to coordinate and track the sequencing effort. To this end, HGSI was created to collect and distribute up-to-date Human Genome sequencing target information; HGSI will provide a "big picture" of the sequencing communities efforts by providing tables and graphic displays of the targets submitted.

humace - analysed human genomic sequences from the Sanger
humace is the acedb database of analysed human genomic sequence generated by the human sequence analysis group at the Sanger Centre.

Human Chromosome Launchpad (ORNL)
This site is provided as a single-source launchpad to information about each human chromosome.

Each chromosome page provides links to gene maps, sequences, associated genetic disorders, nonhuman genetic models, identified genes, research efforts and laboratories, and other information as available.

Human Chromosome Ideograms (Washington University)
Human Chromosome Ideograms can be selected and displayed, courtesy of David Adler.

Cytogenetics Gallery
Cytogenetics is the study of chromosomes and chromosome abnormalities. The purpose of this Cytogenetics Gallery is to give you the opportunity to see what chromosomes look like under the microscope and how abnormalities of chromosomes are identified. Selecting topics from the Index will display images and explanatory text.

Normal Human Chromosomes
A karyotype shows the metaphase chromosomes of an individual cell, arranged in pairs and sorted according to size. There are 22 pairs of autosomal chromosomes and a pair of sex chromosomes. The male sex chromosomes consist of one X and one Y chromosome. The female karyotype looks just like the male, except that the sex chromosome pair is made up of two X chromosomes and no Y.

Karyotypes are a simple way to evaluate chromosomes. Many diseases and malformations are a direct result of missing, broken, or extra chromosomes. Scientists called cytogeneticists can recognize and identify many of these gross chromosomal abnormalities in a karyotype.
