Overview

The AspGD site map provides a comprehensive listing of major AspGD resources and tools. It is organized by the major categories available at AspGD, which correspond to the links located on the left side of the home page. The resources and tools available in that category are listed, followed by a description of the resource and its primary use. A link to the help documentation is also provided, if it is available for that resource.

For more information on how to navigate around AspGD, please read the Getting Started page.

Genome Restriction Analysis Generates a restriction map of a specified DNA sequence. The restriction map may include all enzymes, or a subset of enzyme types (3' overhangs, 5' overhangs, blunt ends, or enzymes that cut once or twice). Display the restriction map for an Aspergillus or other input sequence.

GO Resources What is GO? SGD help page that explains the philosophy of GO. Get an overview of Gene Ontology (GO).  
SGD's GO Tutorial Tutorial that highlights pages and tools that use GO annotations to familiarize users with the Gene Ontology (GO). Learn where GO annotations are located on AspGD pages and how to use them.  
GO Slim Mapper GO Slim is a set of GO terms that represent major sections of the ontology. Gene products are annotated to the most specific GO term possible. This tool traces the specific annotations to their broader GO Slim terms for a given set of Aspergillus genes. Map a set of Aspergillus genes to broad GO Slim categories.
help page
GO Term Finder Aspergillus gene products are annotated to the most specific GO terms possible. Common parent terms may not be obvious. This tool determines the GO terms that a set of genes share in common and graphically displays the significant lineage. Find GO terms that are shared by a group of Aspergillus genes.
