The quick search
functionality is part of the toolbar on top of almost every
SGN web page. To use it, simply enter a search term
in the text input box and click on the quick search
button. The search can take a while depending on
the actual word you search. Specifically, words
that appear in many of the blast annotations, such
'Arabidopsis', will increase search time.
Quick search performs a series of searches in
the database and displays a summary page of the
matches. For each of the searches, a line is
displayed with information how many entities were
matched in the database.
If entities were found in the database, a link
is provided to complete the actual search. Click on
that link to see the search results.
The individual quick searches do the
- Identifier searches
- Identifier searches perform exact match
searches on clone, est, unigene and marker
identifiers in the database
- The annotation searches search the manual and
automatic annotation that are available for
unigenes. They report the number of annotations
and the number of corresponding unigenes that
were found. If there are more than 5000
annotation matches, the number of unigenes is not
reported to save on querying time.
- Searches the last name as a sub-string match
in the SGN People Directory.
- Searches the libraries on name, tissue,
development stage, authors, and other fields as a
SGN Pages search
- Performs a Google search on the
sgn.cornell.edu domain. Please note that when we
re-arrange pages on the SGN site, it may take
Google a number of days to re-index the site, so
sometimes the pages you find with this search
will not be valid. However, we will try to keep
site rearrangements to a minimum.
