This track shows alignments of cow mRNAs from the Mammalian Gene Collection (MGC) having full-length open reading frames (ORFs) to the genome. The goal of the Mammalian Gene Collection is to provide researchers with unrestricted access to sequence-validated full-length protein-coding cDNA clones for human, mouse, and rat genes.

Display Conventions and Configuration

The track follows the display conventions for gene prediction tracks.

An optional codon coloring feature is available for quick validation and comparison of gene predictions. To display codon colors, select the genomic codons option from the Color track by codons pull-down menu. Click here for more information about this feature.


GenBank cow MGC mRNAs identified as having full-length ORFs were aligned against the genome using blat. When a single mRNA aligned in multiple places, the alignment having the highest base identity was found. Only alignments having a base identity level within 1% of the best and at least 95% base identity with the genomic sequence were kept.


The cow MGC full-length mRNA track was produced at UCSC from mRNA sequence data submitted to GenBank by the Mammalian Gene Collection project.
