Abstract

The recent sequencing and draft assembly of a chicken genome has provided biologists with an invaluable research tool that complements a growing list of additional avian genomic resources. For many researchers, finding and using these resources is challenging, because information is presented through an increasing number of Web sites and browser navigation frequently requires specific knowledge and expertise. This primer provides an overview of online genomic resources for the chicken, including the Ensembl, UCSC, and NCBI annotated chicken genome browsers; expressed sequence tag and in situ hybridization databases; and sources for microarrays, cDNAs, and bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs). Several short tutorials oriented toward the biologist with limited bioinformatics skills outline how to retrieve several types of commonly needed information and reagents.
