Database Description

HUMHOT is a web based database of human meiotic recombination hot spot DNA sequences. The database includes the hot spot sequences (<4 kb) obtained from published literature describing the high resolution mapping of human meiotic hot spots and also the hot spot flanking sequence information. It can be queried based on hot spot locus name, chromosome number or by homology to user defined sequences. The database is also updated with new hot spot sequences as they are discovered and provides hyperlinks to commonly used tools for estimating recombination rates, performing genetic analysis and new advances in our understanding of meiotic hot spots.
