Featured RGD Video Tutorials

JBrowse Genome Browser


This video will demonstrate how to use the RGD JBrowse Genome Browser. The JBrowse Genome Browser allows the user to view objects such as genes, variants, QTLs, and so forth in their genomic context. You can view versions for Rat, Human and Mouse.

Molecular Pathway Diagrams

This video will demonstrate how to use the RGD Molecular Pathway Diagrams. You can access the Ontology Report for the pathway, view the description for the pathway with its various interactions and components, and you can click on any of the pathway’s interactive features to view more information about that entity.

PhenoGen Informatics Genome/Transcriptome Data and Browser

RGD has been providing links from our gene pages to the PhenoGen Informatics Genome/Transcriptome Data Browser, but there’s a good chance you don’t know all there is to know about the tool. Want more information about how to use it so you can get the most out of its data and functionality? This informative hands-on workshop video is just the tutorial to help you with that!

Click here to access RGD’s Rat Community Videos page.  This page includes all of the tutorial videos that RGD has produced, plus other videos of interest to rat researchers.
