March 2015, Annotation Release 105

This full annotation run includes the following assembly(ies):

The NCBI Map Viewer presents a graphical view of several types of maps for the mouse, including genetic, radiation hybrid, sequence, and YAC maps. Extensive documentation is provided to describe the resource features and methods used, tutorials, and statistics.

The sequence maps include the reference assembly (GRCm38.p3) and an alternate assembly from Celera. The reference assembly GRCm38.p3 includes the primary assembly which is based on the C57BL/6J genome and includes contigs assembled from finished (phase 3) high throughput genomic sequence (HTGs), single fragment HTGS phase 2 and WGS contigs. A hand-curated tiling path was used to guide its assembly. The reference assembly GRCm38.p3 also includes several alternate loci (ALT_LOCI), which are BAC-based partial assemblies from other strains (several 129 substrains, A/J, AKR/J, Balb/c, C3H, Cast/Ei, two NOD substrains, SJL/J, and RIII).

By default, the sequence maps show the data and annotations from the primary assembly unit (C57BL/6) for the reference assembly, GRCm38.p3. To see the data from another assembly, select the name of the desired assembly and choose from the available maps in the Maps & Options dialog box, which is available from the display of any chromosome or chromosome region.

The Map Viewer Help document provides information on how to search a genome and control the display. A separate document describes all of the available mouse maps, and includes links to documents describing the genome build process.
