Syntax Hints for Database Search in the Glossary of Genetic Terms


prepared and presented by:
Birgid Schlindwein, Weihenstephan Information and Documentation Centre

  1. You can use * for truncation:
    eg the search expression ge* will find all terms starting with 'ge...'
    the search with only * will result in the list of all terms.
  2. If the search result is more than one term, you will get a list, where you pick the desired term
  3. You can use ? for replacing exactly one sign:
    eg the search expression a?en* will find 'acentric' and 'adenine'
