There is now a gopher version of the The Encyclopedia of the Mouse Genome.
Here you can view the genetic maps of each mouse chromosome, search
for specific loci on these maps as well as search for references and
notes associated with each locus on the map.
  
In addition you can search the Mouse Locus Catalog which contains detailed 
information on mouse loci.


Now for a little tour:

Point your gopher client at merlot.welch.jhu.edu and select the following:

 -->  13. Search Databases at Hopkins (Vectors, Promoters, NRL-3D, EST, OMIM../

  -->  17. Mouse Databases (TBASE, Encyclopedia of the Mouse Genome)/

   -->  1.  Encyclopedia of the Mouse Genome/


And you'll see:

 -->  1.  About the Encyclopedia of the Mouse Genome.
      2.  Browse through the Chromosomes/
      3.  Search Maps for Loci <?>
      4.  Notes <?>
      5.  References <?>
      6.  Mouse Locus Catalog (MLC) <?>


If you have a specific locus in mind that you would like to see it's map
position select:


-->  3.  Search Maps for Loci <?>

If you want to see the map position of abl:

And you'll see:


-->  1.  Abl - Abelson murine leukemia oncogene (2)


If you select this entry you will see the map for Chromosome 2 with the
Expanded view which contains Abl.

Note that above you are shown the Locus symbol, Abl, the locus name, Abelson 
murine leukemia oncogene, and the Chromosome on which it resides, (2).  These 
are all searchable.  For example your could search for:

And you'll see:
