I'm given an assignment in which I have to use UCSC genome browser to extract the gene (sequence) of LWS (long wav sensitive) opsin in 5-6 mammals. This is my first time using this browser n I'm a beginner in bioinfo so probably thats why I'm experiencing some issues here.
My issues are as follows :
When I hit search by typing the above gene name LWS in the blank area, choose a mammal, say, rabbit, I'm not getting any specific results. The search result page is showing non rabbit genes. I dont understand why when i specifically asked for rabbit. The same happens when I choose a different mammal. Does this mean the lws gene is not present in that particular mammal? I'm giving a link for the results here. Please help me understand what does Non-rabbit ref seq genes and Non-Rabbit Aligned mRNA sequences mean? Why am I not getting the desired result for rabbit?
