Welcome to the gene and allele database tutorial

Gramene v. 26

Welcome to the Gene and Allele Database Tutorial

This tutorial will describe how to navigate the section of Gramene that provides descriptions of alleles associated with morphological, developmental, and agronomically important phenotypes and variants of physiological characters, biochemical functions and isozymes.

Many genes in Gramene also have map positions and sequencing data.

Use * to search for wildcards

1. Use the “search” link from the gene menu to select a more limited (specific) search. (see slide 5) or

2. Use the general search option.

Explains module navigation menu,

Search options
Search Options

Option 1. Click an ontology to search ontologies db.

Option 2. Search by term

Click search icon

Optionally, select field name, gene type, species, and whether or not the gene is associated with a known phenotype.

Be aware of wildcards. For example, searches for *dwarf, dwarf*, and *dwarf* will all give different results.

Option 3. You may also browse for a gene via Literature Database. Go to the Literature Database in Gramene. Literature detail will display genes in the “Associated Data" field.

Results for gene search by term key word
Results for Gene Search by Term / Key word

There are 99 entries for rice genes with CDS and phenotype

Click to view next 25 results as needed.

Click on linked column headings to sort table by that column

Click on a gene symbol to view the detail page for that particular gene (for tutorial select “d1” and see slide 9)

Gene detail page general info
Gene Detail Page General Info

Gene detail is displayed along the top. See Help file for term definitions.

Associated Data is under the Gene detail. The number represent numbers of associations. Click a category to expand the table and access that data in Gramene (see slides 8–13). Grayed-out categories have no associations.

Gene detail may vary by species, depending upon level of curation.

Gene interactions
Gene interactions

If it is known that a gene interacts with another gene, that will be noted here.

Genes map positions

Select to view the highlighted gene in Maps or on the genome browser (See Maps and Genomes tutorials).

Genes associated ontologies
Genes – associated ontologies

Click links to go to the Ontology Database within Gramene. (See Ontology tutorial).

Gene associated references
Gene - Associated References

Click to view Oryzabase’s information on the selected gene.

Click reference info to go to the reference in Gramene Literature database (See Literature tutorial).

Gene images
