RGD | Genomic, phenotypic and environmental variations and disease


Provides a comprehensive data repository and informatics platform related to the laboratory rat, one of the most important model organisms for disease studies. Rat Genome Database (RGD) maintains and updates datasets for genomic elements such as genes, transcripts and increasingly in recent years, sequence variations, as well as map positions for multiple assemblies and sequence information. Functional annotations for genomic elements are curated from published literature, submitted by researchers and integrated from other public resources. Complementing the genomic data catalogs are those associated with phenotypes and disease, including strains, quantitative trait loci (QTL) and experimental phenotype measurements across hundreds of strains.
