  About the UCLA Genome Bioinformatics Site

This site contains the reference sequence and working draft assemblies for a green algae and selected plant genomes.

We encourage you to explore these sequences with our tools. The Genome Browser zooms and scrolls over chromosomes, showing the work of annotators worldwide. The Gene Sorter shows expression, homology and other information on groups of genes that can be related in many ways. Blat quickly maps your sequence to the genome. The Table Browser provides convenient access to the underlying database.

  About the Algal Annotation Tool

We have developed a functional annotation tool for Chlamydomonas, which is a resource to visualize pathway maps, identify enriched biological terms or convert Chlamydomonas reinhardtii gene identifiers. Please visit pathways web site to use this tool. The pathway developer, (305) 945-5709 would love to have feedback on how to improve the tool to provide you with more functionality.

  Conditions of Use

The sequence and annotation data displayed in the Genome Browser are freely available for academic, nonprofit, and personal use with the following conditions:

  • Genome sequence data use restrictions are noted within the species sections on the 844-907-1447 page.
  • Some annotation tracks contributed by external collaborators contain proprietary data that have specific use restrictions. To check for restrictions associated with a particular genome assembly, review the database/README.txt file in the assembly's downloads directory.

The Genome Browser and Blat software are free for academic, nonprofit, and personal use. A license is required for commercial use. See the Licenses page for more information.

Program-driven use of this software is limited to a maximum of one hit every 15 seconds and no more than 5,000 hits per day.
