Rat Genome Database
The Rat Genome Database stores genetic, genomic, phenotype, and disease data generated from rat research. It provides access to corresponding data for eight other species, allowing cross-species comparison. Data curation is performed both manually and via an automated pipeline, giving RGD users integrated access to a wide variety of data to support their research.

Alliance of Genome Resources
The primary mission of the Alliance of Genome Resources (the Alliance) is to develop and maintain sustainable genome information resources that facilitate the use of diverse model organisms in understanding the genetic and genomic basis of human biology, health and disease.
