Piloting the zebrafish genome browser



This correspondence is a primer for the zebrafish research community on zebrafish tracks available in the UCSC Genome Browser at http://genome.ucsc.edu based on Sanger's Zv4 assembly. A primary capability of this facility is comparative informatics between humans (as well as many other model organisms) and zebrafish. The zebrafish genome sequencing project has played important roles in mutant mapping and cloning, and comparative genomic research projects. This easy-to-use genome browser aims to display and download useful genome sequence information for zebrafish mutant mapping and cloning projects. Its user-friendly interface expedites annotation of the zebrafish genome sequence. Developmental Dynamics 235:747–753, 2006. © 2005 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
