What determines the content of this report?

The marker summary content depends on how you filled out the fields on the Genes and Markers Query Form.


What should the summary report contain?

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.
SymbolMarker symbol and name, linked to the MGI marker detail page.
