How do I view annotations for mouse/human/rat homolog sets?
You can use the Search Box to find information about genes, markers or accession identifiers in MGI. The Search Box returns a list of genes, markers, or accession IDs that contain your entry.
Accessing the Search Box
On most MGI pages, you can find the Search Box in the upper right corner, as shown in the image.

For this tutorial, open the MGI home page in a new window. Scroll down this page for further instructions.
