IMGT/HLA is a database that specializes in the human major histocompatibility complex and its sequences.
There are 8,949 allele sequences that are available, and of them, 6919 are HLA Class I Alleles, 1,875 are HLA Class II Alleles and 155 are other non-HLA Alleles.
Information about the source material, from which the sequences were obtained, is provided in detail.
Authors of publications regularly check their data against IMGT/HLA first to ascertain the official name of their sequence to avoid confusion due to multiple names for the same product.
An IMGT/HLA Alignment Tool is provided as well as protein and nucleotide Blast search options.
