RGD publications announcement

Our most recent paper titled The Rat Genome Database: Genetic, Genomic, and Phenotypic Data Across Multiple Species has been published in Current Protocols.
The laboratory rat is an important model of human health and disease, and experimental findings in the rat have relevance to human physiology and disease. The Rat Genome Database (RGD, https://rgd.mcw.edu) is a model organism database that provides access to a wide variety of curated rat data including disease associations, phenotypes, pathways, molecular functions, biological processes, cellular components, and chemical interactions for genes, quantitative trait loci, and strains. We present an overview of the database followed by specific examples that can be used to gain experience in employing RGD to explore the wealth of functional data available for the rat and other species.
