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!

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.
