Viewing Gene Expression Data
The following special operators can be used to build queries:
Example Search Type
dopamine AND receptor
ABAT OR AChE
"dopamine receptor" NOT DRD3
- AND, OR and NOT must be upper case.
- The AND function is implicit, so spaces between words that are not separated by an operator will be treated like AND.
- OR has higher operator precedence than AND.
- Parentheses can be used to group criteria, but nested parentheses are not supported at this time.
Searches will return a list of experiments based on the input search criteria. Each row includes the following information.
Add the experiment to your selections by clicking the checkbox
(Differential Search only) A numeric value representing the fold change between expression of the target structure(s) and the Contrast structure(s)
