How we did it
To find the sequence of the human FRY gene, follow the steps below:
- Go to Ensembl.
- Choose 'Human' and search for 'FRY' in the search box.
- Click on 'FRY (Human Gene)'. You should now be in the gene summary page for FRY (Figure 53).
Figure 53: The Sequence link at the left of the gene summary page is shown above.
- Click on 'Sequence' at the left hand side. You should now see the sequence (Figure 54).
Figure 54: Red highlight shows where the exon is. You can use this information to design the primers.
Now let's find out which genes neighbour FRY.
- Click on the location tab to see FRY and its surrounding region (Figure 55).
Figure 55: The neighbouring genes are a non-coding (blue) gene called FRY-AS1, and a small protein-coding (gold) gene called ZAR1L. If it's difficult to see which name matches which gene, click on any coloured bar for more information.
