MADISON, Wis.--The Laboratory for Genetic Research at the Medical College of Wisconsin has designed a tool to assist researchers in selecting polymorphic markers for a genome scan of a cross between two strains. The Genome Scanner uses the laboratory’s Allele Characterization Project dataset in combination with the various genetic and radiation hybrid maps. The tool, which will eventually be housed within the Rat Genome Database, expected to be online by year’s end, is available now at http://goliath.ifrc.mcw.edu/LGR/research/tools/genome_scanner.html.
