Searching the Database

Basic Search:
The search term is compared to the 'RNAi ref', 'ORF ref' and phenotype text description fields (Experiment: comments. Publication: functionAffected, proPhenotype, bsfPhenotype) in the database. These are automatically searched with wildcards, such that entering 'plast' would match both kinetoplast and cytoplast.
Advanced Search:
The advanced search is constructed on an 'AND' basis. Therefore narrowing the search is a matter of selecting more variables. Phenotype text description fields are the same as in basic search (Experiment: comments. Publication: functionAffected, proPhenotype, bsfPhenotype)
All phenotypes which differ from the wildtype can be retrieved through the 'Get All Abnormal' link.
