Finding polymorphic Rat SNPs using RGD's SNPlotyper tool

submitted by: simont

This screencast shows how to identify polymorphic SNPs between different rat strains using RGD's SNPlotyper tool and the STAR consortium SNP genotype dataset. SNPlotyper is available at the Rat Genome Database (http://rgd.mcw.edu) and contains SNP genotype data produced by the european STAR consortium (http://www.snp-star.eu/)

When it Comes to the Rat Genome, Bigger is Better

submitted by: dabraham
The rat genome comes to life through the use of the Gviewer tool. This video will show you how to use this helpful tool within the RGD website at http://rgd.mcw.edu/ . Genes, QTLs, and species syntenies of interest can all be visualized with ease as the Gviewer zooms in and navigates through the rat genome with a few clicks. See our website at http://rgd.mcw.edu/ for more tools for rat researchers.

Return to Zambia MWV 17

submitted by: MicrobeWorld
The American Society for Microbiology is helping African nations foster a scientific community that is better able to address the current and future problems that threaten not only the local population, but the world at large. Like many African countries, Zambia and South Africa are deeply affected by HIV and tuberculosis, as well as a number of other infectious diseases. In March of 2008, ASM President Cliff Houston, Ph.D., traveled to Zambia and South Africa to gauge and assess the...
