Exploring a genomic region in rice

(a) Go to the region 1:405000-453000 in Oryza sativa Japonica.

(b) Turn on the AGILENT:G2519F-015241 microarray track. Are there any oligo probes that map to this region?

(c) Highlight the region around any reverse strand probes you can see. Do they map to any transcripts?

(a) Go to the Ensembl Plants homepage.

Select Search: Oryza sativa Japonica and type 1:405000-453000. Click Go.

(b) Click on Configure this page to open the menu. You can find the AGILENT:G2519F-015241 track under Oligo probes in the left hand menu, or by using the Find a track box at the top right. Turn on the track then save and close the menu.

As the AGILENT:G2519F-015241 track is stranded, it appears at the top and bottom of the view, in green.

There are five probes mapped to this region on the positive strand and one probe on the reverse strand.

(c) Drag a box around the reverse strand probe then click on Mark region to highlight.

The highlighted region maps to two transcripts: Os01t0107900-02 and Os01t0107900-01
