Search for phenotypes
The phenotype search field allows the user to query for specific phenotypes in an organism-independent manner. Incomplete queries will also be matched to the database entries, e.g. a search for 'regulation' can be used to search for both 'upregulation' and 'downregulation'.
A search for 'upregulation' phenotypes identifies all phenotypes related to upregulation such as 'Upregulation of Hh pathway' and 'Upregulation of Notch pathway after Notch stimulation' (see example below). For each phenotype description the species in which the screen was performed is displayed.
The 'Text Search' box allows searches within the results, e.g. a search for 'wnt' in the 'Text Search' box after searching for 'Upregulation' phenotypes will display only entries with the search term (see below).
By following the 'Phenotype' link, a list of the screens in which the particular phenotypic classification was observed is shown as well as the other phenotypic descriptions in those screens.
Click on the 'Title' link expands the detailed information about the screen and the publication as described above. Click on the phenotype heading expands the detailed information about the phenotypes; the 'Mapped ID' and 'Reagent ID' (if available) links query the database for the corresponding gene and reagent.
The 'Text Search' box allows filtering within the phenotype entries, e.g. a search for 'CG1' will display only entries with the search term (see below).
