This poster presents some interesting and novel ways to retrieve information from the MGI data resource.

The Mouse Genome Informatics web site contains a variety of information resources including gene characterization and nomenclature information, maps and supporting raw mapping data, gene expression data, comparative maps and homology data, mouse FACTS pages, news group archives, reviews of gene function and phenotypes, electronic submissions information, citations, and specific links to many other bioinformatics resources.

Researchers seeking specific information are helped through multiple entry points to the data resource such as query forms by dataset (mapping, genes, expression, homology, etc.), reference-based data associations, links to sequence data, and cross-database text query capabilities.

In addition to the specific data collection through the Mouse Genome Database (MGD) or Gene Expression Database (GXD) integrated database resource, MGI provides access to rat mapping data, strain descriptions, the Mouse Tumor Database (MTB) and Chromosome Committee reports. An increasing emphasis on the use of controlled vocabularies for describing gene function and phenotype, disease phenotypes, tissue libraries and other specific data types creates opportunities for ever more biologically relevant queries.

MGD is supported by NIH Grant HG00330, GXD is supported by NIH grants HD33745 and HD08435.
