OLGA- Object List Generator and Analyzer

The purpose of OLGA is to build lists for rat genes, QTLs and strains. OLGA can also be used to query human and mouse genes and QTLs. Search for genomic data annotated to specific diseases, conditions and other queries. Multiple searches will allow you to refine your final result list to use for your own analysis or to send to another tool on the RGD website. This step-by-step instructional tutorial will walk you through the OLGA tool and explain terms in detail.

PhenoGen Informatics Genome/Transcriptome Data and Browser

RGD has been providing links from our gene pages to the PhenoGen Informatics Genome/Transcriptome Data Browser, but there's a good chance you don't know all there is to know about the tool. Want more information about how to use it so you can get the most out of its data and functionality? This informative hands-on workshop video is just the tutorial to help you with that!
