"Welcome to the Markers Database Tutorial"
Gramene v. 26 Welcome to the Markers Database Tutorial The Markers Database will allow you to locate a specific marker based upon marker name, marker type or species. Once identified, you will be able to view marker information, including ID, germplasm and genome positioning, as well as get marker-type specific information. Markers also link to the Maps, Literature and Ontologies Databases. 2/11/2009 1 Tutorial Tips If you are viewing this tutorial with Adobe Acrobat Reader, click the "bookmarks" on the left hand side of the Reader for easier navigation.

To refine search, specify a marker type and/or a taxonomy Markers Search (species). For taxonomy use common or scientific name. 1. Type marker name. Use * for wildcards. 3. Click “search icon.” Or Click to run sample searches. Clicking on “Search” lets you search for markers of that type. These tables show a Clicking on a marker type lets breakdown of markers you view a definition of that in the database by marker type. marker type. 2/11/2009 6 Marker Search Result Title identifies parameters of the search. There are 146 results for this search. Click on linked column titles to sort results by that column. Click on a marker name to view its details (see Slide 10). Search results include marker synonyms. If you don’t know the name of a marker, you may search Click on species or type for on its synonym. more info on that species or marker type (Slides 7-8) Use Download link at bottom to view a tab- delimited file of entire result set (see Slide 9). 2/11/2009 7 Species Detail Title identifies parameters of the search. Taxonomy Links to Ontologies Database. See Ontologies Tutorial Click to search for all map sets linked to the species. Click to search for all markers linked to this species. 2/11/2009 8 Marker Type Detail Title identifies parameters of the search. Marker type detail shows what is known about a given marker type, such as its name, a description, and possibly some cross- references. Click to search for all the markers of this particular type. 2/11/2009 9 Marker Detail Title identifies parameters of the search. Click to open GenBank record. The germplasm from which the marker was derived, if available. Info may vary by species. 2/11/2009 10 Source Library When available, this information will be posted here. Name links to source library page in markers, Ontologies link to Ontologies database. 2/11/2009 11 SSR mRNA Detail Marker details vary with marker type and data availability. Here are some examples. RAPD QTL SSR Primer Pair FPC EST Cluster 2/11/2009 12 Database Cross References Lists references available in Gramene Literature database related to this marker. Links to reference detailed info. 2/11/2009 13 Sequences When appropriate and available, DNA sequences will be listed in their own section, with a link to BLAST. 2/11/2009 14 Mappings These links go to the Maps module, where you can get more information on this marker. See Maps Tutorial. Click for Map Set info and view a list of all markers on this map. (As in Slide 18) 2/11/2009 15 Associations The basis of this association. Other markers associated with this marker. Click for marker info 2/11/2009 16 Images Title identifies parameters of the search.

Select hyperlinked There are 220 map sets headings to sort table by in Gramene. You may that column. search them by map type and species. Maps are grouped by type, then by species. Click for Map Set info. 2/11/2009 (See next slide) 18 Browse Map Sets – Map concepts • Any item that is positioned on a map is called a feature – also known in Gramene as a marker or a mapping. Feature (marker) types are shown on Slide #5. • A map is a linear array of interconnected features. This could represent a single linkage group in the case of a genetic map, or a single contig for physical maps. • Related maps are grouped into map sets. Generally, these are the result of a particular study, such as the set of linkage groups produced by a genetic mapping study. 2/11/2009 19 Map Set Info from Markers db The markers module contains genomic data for mappings. However, in order to view it as a visual map, this data must be exported to CMap and the Map viewer. Click to view this Mapset’s CMap data. This is the information available for the mapsets. Click on a category to expand it (next two slides) 2/11/2009 20 Mapset data Crossreferences link to other databases – such as Gramene’s literature module, or to Graingenes. A Mapset consists of a series of related maps, in this case one for each chromosome. Clicking there will take yoy to the Map data, similar to the current view but for a single map rather than a mapset. Click mapping type for a definition. 2/11/2009 21 Mapset data Click Mappings Number for a clickable list with marker name, type, species, start, stop and link to feature information in CMap (see Maps/CMap tutorial).. 2/11/2009 22 SSR Markers Resource Use the SSRIT to search for repeats of your own data.
