SysFACE (Systems tool for craniofacial expression-based gene discovery)
Using SysFACE for prioritization of genes within a mapped interval for orofacial clefts
SysFACE tracks allow the visualization of genes in context of their enrichment of expression in CF tissue. After opening the browser for the human genome assembly window, the user can type in the interval of interest and the entire genome track is loaded. This representation allows immediate visual detection of the best candidates in a given genomic interval, and allows one to zoom in or out to visualize the presence of promising candidates within a particular region or proximal to it.
To test a genomic region of interest for orofacial cleft candidate genes, open a specific genome assembly on the UCSC Genome Browser with SysFACE tracks by clicking on the following links:
