gi|14247351), gene names (
dnaK), EC numbers (
220.127.116.11), genus (
Vibrio), species (
vulnificus), and words contained in subsystem names (
transport), functional assignments (
phosphoglycerate), and subsystem classes (
membrane). You may also use attributes like
essential. A list of genes that match all of the keywords will be returned.
18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124would match all bifunctional genes associated with both EC numbers 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52, while
(184.108.40.206) (220.127.116.11)would match the bifunctional genes as well as all single function genes with either of those EC numbers. Use a minus sign to exclude genes matching a particular keyword. For example,
Vibrio -hypotheticalwould match all Vibrio genes except those marked hypothetical.
Finally, you can use quotes to ensure the keywords appear in the proper order. For example, a search of Campylobacter coli RM2228 for
membrane protein will match all genes with the words membrane and protein anywhere in the annotation. In particular, it will match fig|306254.1.peg.102 Ankyrin repeat-containing possible periplasmic protein, which has a cellular localization prediction of "outer membrane". To exclude this gene and others like it, you would instead search for
"membrane protein", which will only match genes that encode actual membrane proteins.
