How do I find all mouse genes with shared annotation to a GO term?
Overview
You can use the GO Browser to search for genes annotated to a specific Gene Ontology term.
Accessing the GO Browser
On most MGI pages, you can access the GO Browser from the Search menu as shown in the image at right.

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