What's new at MGI
updated May 7, 2018  
  • Two new matrixes allow you to compare activity patterns for recombinases and tissues where mutations in a gene cause abnormalities with the wild-type expression pattern of the gene. Read more...
  • The Differential Expression and Recombinase Activity searches now offer the ability to search for genes/drivers that are expressed/detected in a tissue but not anywhere else. Read more...
  • The Alliance of Genome Resources (AGR) 1.0 release enables searches of data from 6 Model Organism Databases and the GO Consortium. Read more...
  • MGI enhances the Disease Ontology Browser and introduces a Human Phenotype Ontology Browser. Read more...
