This track shows alignments of rat mRNAs from the
Mammalian Gene Collection
(MGC) having full-length open reading frames (ORFs) to the genome.
The goal of the Mammalian Gene Collection is to provide researchers with
unrestricted access to sequence-validated full-length protein-coding cDNA
clones for human, mouse, and rat genes.
Display Conventions and Configuration
The track follows the display conventions for
An optional codon coloring feature is available for quick
validation and comparison of gene predictions.
To display codon colors, select the genomic codons option from the
Color track by codons pull-down menu. For more information
about this feature, go to the
Coloring Gene Predictions and Annotations by Codon page.
GenBank rat MGC mRNAs identified as having full-length ORFs
were aligned against the genome using blat. When a single mRNA
aligned in multiple places, the alignment having the highest base identity was
found. Only alignments having a base identity level within 1% of
the best and at least 95% base identity with the genomic sequence
The rat MGC full-length mRNA track was produced at UCSC from
mRNA sequence data submitted to
GenBank by the Mammalian Gene Collection project.
