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:...
