How do I find all of one kind of allele (e.g. cre transgenes, LoxP/Frt-flanked alleles, etc.)?
Overview
You can use the Phenotypes, Alleles and Disease Models Query Form to find alleles of a gene, alleles associated with a specific phenotype, or alleles created by a specific type of mutation.
Accessing the Phenotypes, Alleles and Disease Models Query Form
On most MGI pages, you can access the Phenotypes, Alleles and Disease Models Query Form from the Search menu as shown in the image at right.

For this tutorial, open the Phenotypes, Alleles and Disease Models Query Form in a new window. Scroll down this page for further instructions.
