Enter a locus name and this tool will return the best available chromosomal coordinates.
Do you want to look up two linked loci at the same time?
The Locus Lookup tool works by:
Note well: even though your locus physically maps to a known location within a BAC, because most BAC sequences currently are comprised of concatenated sequence fragments of unknown order and orientation, the locus' position on each individual BAC sequence may be anywhere on the BAC associated with a physically mapped probe [i.e., for (4) above, the sequence for the probe and/or locus of interest could be anywhere on BAC(s) associated with the probe(s) identified, even outside of the region bounded by the physically mapped probe locations]. For this reason, a conservative window showing the entire BAC(s) to which the probe(s) have been physically mapped, is shown.
This tool works by finding the nearest genetically mapped loci that flank the input locus, and have an association with the B73 genome sequence. Sometimes, the input locus will fall outside the predicted region. This is due to the intrinsic nature of the genetic consensus maps, and the current status of the B73 genome sequence.
