Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 3965027
PMID: 24316579
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkt1282

[…] ses featured in this issue include regular updates from Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD), WormBase, FlyBase, Mouse Genome Database (MGD), Mouse Gene Expression Database, Mouse Phenome Database and Vertebrate Genome Annotation (VEGA) database, as well as a description of the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC) web portal. […]


ZFIN: enhancements and updates to the zebrafish model organism database

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 3013679
PMID: 21036866
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkq1077

[…] re the zebrafish genome, including information about genome annotations and the positions of genes on the chromosomes. Tracks are aligned to the current version of the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute Vertebrate Genome Annotation [Vega; ()] genome assembly and link to data-specific pages at ZFIN or Vega. Individual tracks show ZFIN genes with phenotype, ZFIN genes with gene expression data, Vega ge […]


Investigation of G72 (DAOA) expression in the human brain

PMCID: 2630984
PMID: 19077230
DOI: 10.1186/1471-244X-8-94

[…] a neighboring gene, non-functional pseudogenes, or transcribed pseudogenes. The ExonWalk program merges cDNA evidence together to predict full length isoforms, including alternative transcripts. The Vertebrate Genome Annotation (VEGA) database build 30 is designed to be a central repository for manual annotation of different vertebrate finished genome sequence []. Finished genomic sequence is ana […]


Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy type 6 (ARVC6): support for the locus assignment, narrowing of the critical region and mutation screening of three candidate genes

BMC Med Genet
PMCID: 1444927
PMID: 16569242
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2350-7-29

[…] ormed using the option blastn [] to detect possible contaminating sequences from other chromosomes. LocusLink was used to determine the gene structure of ITGA8 and FRMD4A candidate genes, whereas the Vertebrate Genome Annotation database was used for the LAMR1P6 pseudogene. The genes in the critical region were positioned relative to the microsatellite markers. Information about the expression and […]


Comparison of human (and other) genome browsers

Hum Genomics
PMCID: 3525149
PMID: 16460652
DOI: 10.1186/1479-7364-2-4-266

[…] several gene-related annotations. These include the locations of mRNA and expressed sequence tag (EST) sequences deposited in the major sequence databases, curated gene sequence projects such as the Vertebrate Genome Annotation (VEGA) [], Ref Seq [], MGC [] and ENSEMBL [] and computational predictions such as GenScan [] and Twinscan [].There is a wide range of additional annotations. The location […]
