This Help document answers the following questions about the genes and markers summary:
The marker summary content depends on the button you click on the Genes and Markers Query Form (cM, Nomenclature, or Genome Coordinates) and your choice in the Search box next to the Symbol/Name field. There are two types of searches: narrow and broad.Top
The narrow search is on current gene symbols or names. The broad search includes current as well as old symbols or names, plus any synonyms, alleles, or homologs.Top
- You searched for...
- Feature Type: gene
- Chromosome: equals X
- Genome Coordinates: between 7.4 and 7.9 Mbp
- Sort: by Nomenclature
- Display Limit: equals 500

Field Description Chr If known, the chromosome to which the marker is assigned. cM Marker's centimorgan position. 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 Coordinate (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 Type Marker 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, Name Marker symbol and name, linked to the MGI marker detail page. Matching Text Type 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searches for items containing a match in the following order: current symbol, current name, allele symbol, allele name, withdrawn symbol, withdrawn name, human homolog symbol, human homolog name, other homolog symbol.
Note: If you use the narrow search (gene symbols/names), the Matching Text field does not appear on the Genes and Markers Query Results - Summary report.
