  • $\begingroup$ I did. Look at the comments in the answer, which I couldn't find from google search. $\endgroup$ – Bob Aug 15 '16 at 22:53

You find such information on ncbi gene (or ensembl gene)


Note that Mir 382 still only is provisional.

  • $\begingroup$ So where's the gene? $\endgroup$ – Bob Aug 15 '16 at 0:24
  • $\begingroup$ The section on genomic context lists the physical location of the entrez gene 494331 which is the gene encoding Mir 382 in humans $\endgroup$ – tsttst Aug 15 '16 at 0:27
  • $\begingroup$ Does it not give a specific name as to what gene it is? $\endgroup$ – Bob Aug 15 '16 at 15:41
  • $\begingroup$ The second line at the top has the entry for "Official Full Name". In this case the name of the gene is "microRNA 382" . For the human gene, this name comes from HGNC, which is the official naming committee of human genes. (see the entry on "provided by"). For additional non-standardized names you might also want to see the "also known as" and "Summary" fields at ncbi gene (which is basically one of the two major official resources for genes) $\endgroup$ – tsttst Aug 15 '16 at 16:43
