Our gene database contains too many entries to list them all. Rather,
invite you to search through our gene database by entering data into
of the following text fields and then clicking the associated
The first text field, Gene Symbol, accepts either typed or
input and will suggest
completions based on the characters you enter that match the gene
symbols in our database.
Searching on this field is activated by clicking on the "Symbol"
If no completions are shown, no entries in our database match your
The second text field, Gene Name, will search the database
gene names that match the string you
have entered. The wildcard symbol '*' may be used to indicate "match
zero or more characters at this position". As an example, consider
search string "foo* bar". This will match "foobas bar" as well
"foo bar" but not "foobar". This latter result is because
internal to the search string are significant.
This field does not do auto completion. Searching on this
field is initiated by clicking on the 'Gene Name' button.
The third text field, Entrex Gene Id, will return the gene
the indicated Entrez Gene Id, if such exists within our database.
When results are returned, the first column, Symbol, will
contain the symbol name for the indicated gene. The second column,
Name, lists the name of
the gene as contained in our database. The next column, Chromosome,
indicates on which chromosome the gene is found. The next column,
Entrez Gene Id, is the Id of the gene in the NCBI database.
also serves as a link to the relevant page at the NCBI web site.
The final column, MGI Index, is the gene's index, if
exists, into the
Mouse Genome Informatics database. Clicking on this
field will open the page on MGI's web site containing information
The Clear form button clears the input fields but leaves the
previous results visible. This behavior facilitates copy/paste from
results into the input fields to refine searches.
