Exporting wheat gene data with BioMart, demo
Follow these instructions to guide you through BioMart to answer the following query:
- What genes are found on chromosome 5D, between 19400000 and 21300000 in Wheat?
- What are the NCBI Gene IDs for these genes?
- Are there associated functions from the GO (gene ontology) project that might help describe their function?
- What are their cDNA sequences?
Click on BioMart in the top header of a http://www.plants.ensembl.org page to go to http://www.ensembl.org/biomart/martview
Why are there multiple rows for one gene ID? For example, look at the first few rows.
Note: you can use the Go button to export a file.
What did you learn about the wheat genes in this exercise?
Could you learn these things from the Ensembl browser? Would it take longer?
