MGD: Mouse Genome Database
The Mouse Genome Database (MGD) is an integrated data resource for mouse genetic, genomic, and biological information. MGD includes a variety of data, ranging from gene characterization and genomic structures, to orthologous relationships between mouse genes and those of other mammalian species, to maps (genetic, cytogenetic, physical), to descriptions of mutant phenotypes, to characteristics of inbred strains, to information about biological reagents such as clones and primers. Data are accessed via search/retrieval Web forms and displayed as tables, text, and graphical maps, with supporting primary data. A rich set of hypertext links is provided, such as those from gene and clone information to DNA and protein sequence databases (GenBank, EMBL, DDBJ, SWISS-PROT), from bibliographic data to PubMed, from phenotypes to OMIM (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man), and from gene homology records to the genomic databases of other species.
