FieldDescription
Genetic Location If known, the chromosome and centimorgan position to which the marker is assigned. Centimorgan positions for genes and markers in MGI are based on linear interpolation using the standard genetic map described in Cox et al. (2009) (PMID). Markers without genome coordinates cannot be assigned specific cM locations and are designated as syntenic.
Genome Coordinates (strand)Marker's coordinates on the mouse genome assembly sequence map, and the strand location of the coordinates in parentheses. Plus (+) is = 5' to 3'. Minus (-) is 3' to 5'.
Feature TypeMarker categories resulting from your selection(s) on the query form. For example, if you clicked Non-coding RNA gene, results for rRNA, tRNA, snRNA, snoRNA, or miRNA genes may appear.

Symbol, NameMarker symbol and name, linked to the MGI marker detail page.
Matching TextType of information contained in the database and the text that it matches. The tool searches for items containing a match in the following order: current symbol, current name, allele symbol, allele name, withdrawn symbol, withdrawn name, human homolog symbol, human homolog name, other homolog symbol.
