Searching the Stock Center Tetrahymena Database

You may search the database by using either a full-text search or a field-based search. The full text search will look for any of the exact whole words you enter (no wild cards) and return the results ranked on relevance. The field-based search allows you to set Boolean parameters for combinations of fields.

Case doesn't matter in the full-text search, but the genotype/phenotype field searches are case-sensitive.

Full-text Search

Field-based Search

The available fields are Name, AKA, Species, Comments, MIC genotype, MAC genotype / phenotype, MIC knockins/outs, MAC knockins/outs, Mating type, Gene of interest, Origin, and Publications.

  Search field #1     Search field #2 (optional)

Here are common markers for searches. In the MIC and MAC genotypes, capital letters denote the wild type and lower case letters the mutants. In the MAC phenotype, the suffix -r indicates resistance and -s sensitivity.
