I am studying some genes that are expressed in the brain. I use the online database UniProt to get information about the proteins encoded by the genes of interest. However, I would like to know on which chromosome and which band of the chromosome the genes are located.

I was wondering whether there are any online tools that I can use where I can type the name of a gene of interest and I can get a visualisation of which chromosome the gene is located as well as the band? Any insights are appreciated.

  • $\begingroup$ Well, given the protein, you can use ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/protein then just above the sequence it mentions the chromosome and band e.g 4q31. But no visualisation here. I did see a visualisation tool for human proteins 8 years ago but I forget where. $\endgroup$ Sep 15, 2021 at 9:05

The UCSC genome browser is good for genome visualization. Searching for HBB, for example, gives the follow data by default:

You can also search by band and get a list of genes.
