Introduction to the Variant Visualizer

The examination of SNPs has undergone a recent change, and in response to this change, RGD has released the new Variant Visualizer tool (VarVis), taking the place of the old SNPlotyper tool. VarVis is a visualization and analysis tool for sequence variation. The data currently contains 22 rat strains sequenced by 4 independent labs.

The Gene Annotator

The Gene Annotator takes a list of gene symbols, RGD IDs, GenBank accession numbers, Ensembl identifiers, and/or a chromosomal region, and retrieves annotation data from RGD. This tool will retrieve annotations from any or all ontologies used at RGD for genes and their orthologs, as well as links to additional information at other databases.

 

The Introduction to Biological Nomenclature Series

Accurate biological nomenclature is an indispensable tool used to create unambiguous annotations for genetic objects such as genes, QTLs and strains. Learn more about this valuable tool with this video series.
