Need a New Rat Model?
March 21, 2017
Need a new rat model?  The RRRC in conjunction with the MU Animal Modeling Core (AMC) can assist with the generation of transgenic rats, create knock-out and knock-in rats using CRISPR/Cas9 technology and genetically manipulate rat embryonic stem cells to make chimeric animals.  Contact us to discuss your rat model needs and how we can help.

RGD announces the release of GOLF, the Gene and Ortholog Location Finder tool
August 26, 2019

RGD is pleased to announce the release of GOLF, the Gene and Ortholog Location Finder tool!  Perhaps you have a list of rat genes and want to find the orthologs in human, or any other of RGD's eight species…GOLF makes it easy to get both orthologs and genomic positions for your list of genes.  Select any one of RGD’s species for your input and enter a list of genes or the position of a region you are interested in, then choose a different RGD species or a different assembly for the same species for your output. GOLF will return the corresponding list of genes and orthologs with the positions in both species or on both assemblies. Send either your input list of genes or the output list of orthologs to other RGD tools for analysis, or download the lists, using the links on the GOLF results page.  Interested in trying it out?  Go to https://rgd.mcw.edu/rgdweb/ortholog/start.html to get started!
