Gene: a gene-centered information resource at NCBI.
Bottom Line: Additional content is integrated based on the genomic location and RefSeq transcript and protein sequence data.The content of a Gene record represents the integration of curation and automated processing from RefSeq, collaborating model organism databases, consortia such as Gene Ontology, and other databases within NCBI.Records in Gene are assigned unique, tracked integers as identifiers.

Mentions: This section (Figure 3) provides the location, the number of exons (for eukaryotic taxa), and a graphic of neighboring genes. For genes annotated by NCBI's Eukaryotic Genome Annotation Pipeline (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK169439/), the annotated location of a gene on the reference assembly is now conveniently displayed in table format, with a link to NCBI's Assembly database for more information. To facilitate working with previous assembly versions, the sequence coordinates from the last annotation of the previous assembly version may also be listed. The number of exons represents the union of distinct, non-overlapping exons annotated for all RefSeq transcripts of the gene. Information on the neighboring genes for all genomic placements can be obtained by following the ‘Gene neighbors’ link in the Related Information menu.
