Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) Genome

Japanese quail

This is a Japanese quail GBrowse that is customized and maintained by the NODAI Genome Research Center (NGRC), Tokyo University of Agriculture. The database of the Japanese quail genome sequence is integrated with that of the chicken (WUGSC 2.1/galGal3), describing the differences (nucleotide substitutions and insertion/deletion information) between the 2 species.
