Nucleotide chains for genes

  1. Mar 20, 2014 #1
    I can find where a gene is usually on a particular chromosome - e.g. Chromosome 1 Mxra8 - but I can not take Mxra8 and find a source for its nucleotide chain. Help here would be appreciated. Would also appreciate if there is any source for the sequence of total bases per chromosome - e.g. the entire nucleotide chain for a chromosome. Would be some long strings but it has to be out there somewhere.

    A good resource to search for information about genes and gene sequences is the National Center for Biotechnology Information (

    For example, here is the NCBI's page for Mxra8:

    A link to the genomic and coding sequences can be found near the bottom of the page:

    You can access the human genome sequence at NCBI as well:
