My question is related to this one. My interest relate to this deletion:


as defined by ISCN.

I would like to access a list of the genes found on the bands 11 to 36 of the 7th chromosome in humans. How can I do that?

There's a brief tutorial here on how to search by band. Here is a more extensive help document, and here is a human-specific help page, Basically:

  1. Select the species and annotation release. We're Homo sapiens, by the way...
  2. Select the chromosome you are interested in.
  3. On the left side of the page, it says Region Shown: followed by two input boxes. You can search by band using standard cytogenetic nomenclature: 7q11 and 7q36. Enter these into the input fields and click Go. Here is 7q11:7q36.
  4. There are various links to download data. Perhaps most relevant to you, there is a link on the left of the page which says Data As Table View. Here is said page, a list of genes at various levels of characterization.

Here is a table of different search queries you can use. There are a couple of ways to analyze the data:

Interactive Genome Browser:

  1. Click on Genome Browser.
  2. In the search field, enter the cytogenetic coordinates: 7q11;7q36. Press Go. Here is the resulting page.

Table Browser (for downloading data):

  1. Click on Tools > Table Browser.
  2. There are a lot of options. A tutorial can be found here. Most important for your search is region. Select the position radio button and enter your cytogenetic coordinates. I'll leave the rest of the options to you.
  • $\begingroup$ Nice answer! I like you offered directly the small tutorial and not only links to explainations. I also like you used the slogan for each data collection. Thanks $\endgroup$
