finding exon - (Feb/10/2008 )
Can anyone tell me pls how to find exons from a provided gene sequence? is there any tool? I found GRAIL but it is not compatiblle with plant species oryza sativa. The gene sequence I have is that of Oryza.
Thanks in advance
Not sure about your species, but NCBI do a good job.
Select 'Gene' from the pull down menu on the main page, and enter your species in the search box.
When the results come up, click on your gene of interest from the results.
Scroll down the next page until 'Genomic context' section and on the right hand side is a link 'See _____ in MapViewer'. ____ = your gene.
This opens MapViewer. Find your gene on the chromosome and click on the 'sv' link next to the gene.
This will show you the genomic sequence with exons marked. You may want to change the display to show maximum amount of sequence per page when scanning along for your exons because can be 10 pages away from each other!
you can use the gene finding tools from softberry (www.softberry.com). there is an option for monocots that includes rice.
heeeyy thanks a looooooot to both of u!!
