The Rat Genome Database (RGD) was started >10 years ago to provide a core genomic resource for rat researchers. Currently, RGD combines genetic, genomic, pathway, phenotype and strain information with a focus on disease. RGD users are provided with access to structured and curated data from the molecular level through the organismal level. Those users(More)
Biological databases have become ubiquitous as demonstrated by the 1,170 molecular biology databases catalogued in the 2009 Nucleic Acids Research online Molecular Biology Database Collection [1]. While researchers have come to rely on the valuable data in these resources, there often is little understanding of how the data are acquired and integrated, and(More)
Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) production in immortalized, nontransformed cells derived from wild-type, cyclooxygenase 1-deficient (COX-1(-/-)) or cyclooxygenase 2-deficient (COX-2(-/-)) mice was examined after treatment with interleukin (IL)-1beta, tumor necrosis factor alpha, acidic fibroblast growth factor, and phorbol ester (phorbol myristate acetate).(More)
The Rat Genome Database (RGD, http://rgd.mcw.edu) was developed to provide a core resource for rat researchers combining genetic, genomic, pathway, phenotype and strain information with a focus on disease. RGD users are provided with access to structured and curated data from the molecular level through to the level of the whole organism, including the(More)
UNLABELLED Gene ontology (GO) annotation is a common task among model organism databases (MODs) for capturing gene function data from journal articles. It is a time-consuming and labor-intensive task, and is thus often considered as one of the bottlenecks in literature curation. There is a growing need for semiautomated or fully automated GO curation(More)
The Rat Genome Database (RGD) is the premier repository of rat genomic and genetic data and currently houses over 40 000 rat gene records, as well as human and mouse orthologs, 1857 rat and 1912 human quantitative trait loci (QTLs) and 2347 rat strains. Biological information curated for these data objects includes disease associations, phenotypes,(More)
The Rat Genome Database (RGD) is the premier repository of rat genomic and genetic data and currently houses over 40,000 rat gene records as well as human and mouse orthologs, 1771 rat and 1911 human quantitative trait loci (QTLs) and 2209 rat strains. Biological information curated for these data objects includes disease associations, phenotypes, pathways,(More)

Rattus norvegicus, the laboratory rat, has been a crucial model for studies of the environmental and genetic factors associated with human diseases for over 150 years. It is the primary model organism for toxicology and pharmacology studies, and has features that make it the model of choice in many complex-disease studies. Since 1999, the Rat Genome(More)
We previously reported that ceramide, the immediate product of sphingomyelin hydrolysis, increases in response to interleukin (IL)-1 beta and plays a role in modulating IL-1 beta-mediated prostaglandin E2 production and cyclooxygenase gene expression in human fibroblasts (Ballou, L. R., C. P. Chao, M. A. Holness, S. C. Barker, and R. Raghow. 1992. J. Biol.(More)
