The Clone Resources Task of the Joint Genome Institute generates large quantities of physical mapping data. These data require the use of a graphical display for ease of understanding. The restriction mapping data generated by the JGI (chromosome 5 data by Steve Lowry and Jan-Fang Cheng, chromosome 16 data by Robert Sutherland and Norman Doggett, and chromosome 19 data by Laurie Gordon and Anne Olsen) has been made available through the use of a Java based graphical interface.
This display enables both the biologists of the JGI and the public at large to view the current restriction maps of the JGI. We have recently upgraded the display to permit users to select a specific area of the chromosome, a gene/marker of interest, a particular map of interest, or a particular clone. These methods permit the user to get directly to the area to be studied. We have also added the display of selected genes and markers to the map, so that relationships between various biological entities are more readily apparent. We have made our sequencing information available directly from the mapping display.
This work was performed by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Energy, Contract No. W-7405-Eng-48.
