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.

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.
