Mouse Genome Informatics


Mouse Genome Informatics provides integrated access to data on the genetics, genomics and biology of the laboratory mouse. The projects contributing to this resource are:

Mouse Genome Database (MGD) Project
MGD includes data on gene characterization, nomenclature, mapping, gene homologies among mammals, sequence links, phenotypes, allelic variants and mutants, and strain data. (See About MGD.)

Gene Expression Database (GXD) Project
GXD integrates different types of gene expression information from the mouse and provides a searchable index of published experiments on endogenous gene expression during development.(See About GXD.)

Mouse Genome Sequence (MGS) Project
The goal of the MGS project is to integrate emerging mouse genomic sequence data with the genetic and biological data available in MGD and GXD. MGS supports the MouseBLAST server as a sequence-level entry point into the MGI Database. (See About MGS.)

Mouse Tumor Biology (MTB) Database Project
MTB integrates data on the frequency, incidence, genetics, and pathology of neoplastic disorders, emphasizing data on tumors that develop characteristically in different genetically defined strains of mice. (See About the MTB.)

Gene Ontology (GO) Project
The Mouse Genome Informatics group is a founding member of the Gene Ontology Consortium ( MGI fully incorporates the GO in the database and provides a GO browser
