RI Manager software and database is available
from Genbank-Server and EMBL Data Library
RI Manager is a Macintosh program which helps analyze the
results of genetic mapping experiments using recombinant
inbred strains. It is a specialized database program which
allows easy storage, retrieval, and display of information
from such experiments, but it also has tools for statistical
analysis of the experimental results.
RI Manager is distributed with a database, compiled by Dr.
Rosemary Elliott, of over 1000 strain distribution patterns
from six sets of recombinant inbred mice. The distribution
also includes a user's manual in the form of a self-
displaying DocMaker document.
The distribution consists of four files: rimgr.readme,
rimgr.hqx, ridata.hqx, and ridoc.hqx. The readme file is
small and uncompressed; the others are each 110K to 180K
and must be converted and unstuffed with Stuffit 1.5.1.
