New gene family pages: beta release

Please go to our new look gene family pages and send us your feedback. More information can be found in our current newsletter.

In April we plan to have the official release of the new family pages which will be replacing the old family pages across our site, and will be linked from symbol reports. The old gene family pages will be archived and remain on the site for up to 6 months after the full release.
