The NMPDR search facility provides many different ways to look for genes, genomes, or sequences in the NMPDR database. The following searches are currently supported.
|DrugSearch||Show in silico docking results for select PDBs.|
|FidSearch||Display genes from one or more genomes filtered by subsystem or keywords.|
|OpSearch||Display genes of a single genome organized into operons.|
|SigGenes||Display genes that are common to a set of genomes, or that differentiate between two sets of genomes.|
|SubSearch||Search for genes in a given subsystem or subsystem class.|
|ToolSearch||Search for genes or DNA using BLAST or pattern-matching.|
|WordSearch||Display genes that match certain keywords.|
The results of a search will generally start with data for the NMPDR core organisms. All NMPDR searches allow you to download results in tab-delimited and XML formats. NMPDR searches that return a list of genes also allow you to download the genes in FASTA format.
Most NMPDR searches use a powerful Genome Control that allows you to choose one or more genomes according to various criteria. Some also use a search-engine style Keyword Box. The Keyword Box can also be found at the top of many of the NMPDR pages.
