An Introduction to Biomedical Nomenclature: Part III, QTL and Marker Nomenclature

submitted by: RGD.Videos
Biomedical nomenclature is a valuable and ever-expanding tool that researchers can use in order to more easily learn about, refer to or retrieve any particular parts of the genome using the literature or through the use of curated data and a variety of tools, such as the ones available in RGD. This video showcases both QTL and marker nomenclature. For a copy of RGNC’s complete set of rules on nomenclature, visit: http://rgd.mcw.edu/nomen/nomen.shtml Or contact us at:...

An Introduction to Biomedical Nomenclature: Part II, Genetic Nomenclature

submitted by: RGD.Videos
This video focuses on rat gene nomenclature, noting how it is formed and where you can go to seek help when naming your genes. Biomedical nomenclature is a valuable and ever-expanding tool that researchers can use in order to more reliably retrieve data on any particular part of the genome through analysis tools, such as the ones available in RGD. Learn more about this vital mechanism. For a copy of RGNC’s complete set of rules on nomenclature, visit:...

An Introduction to Biomedical Nomenclature: Part I, The History and Reasoning behind Biomedical Nomenclature

submitted by: RGD.Videos
The recent emphasis on standardization of nomenclature is not just a trend, but a necessary way to disambiguate the identification of biological objects such as genes, QTLs, markers, and strains. This video will give you some background on the history of standardized genetic nomenclature and the reason for why it’s important in order to strengthen your understanding of genetic nomenclature. For a copy of the complete set of guidelines for nomenclature, visit:...

The connection between genes and colon cancer

submitted by: mdanderson

About 20% of colon cancer cases are related to a strong family history of colon cancer. Eduardo Vilar-Sanchez, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the Department of Clinical Cancer Prevention at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, focuses his discussion on the main types of genetic colon cancers including hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer syndrome or HNPCC (also called Lynch syndrome) and familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP).

Gene Report Pages Tutorial

submitted by: RGD.Videos

RGD’s new gene report pages are an even faster way of learning valuable information on genes, QTLs, markers, and strains. This informative video will show you each area of the report page, as well as how to view a gene and its annotations.
