Searching for specific allele definitions¶
There are two query pages available that allow searching for specific allele definitions. The first allows querying of all loci together by criteria that are common to all. The second is a locus-specific attribute query that can search on any extended attributes that may be defined for a locus. This locus- specific query also allows you to paste in lists of alleles for download or analysis.
General (all loci) sequence attribute search¶
To retrieve specific allele designations, click ‘By specific criteria’ in the ‘Find alleles’ section on a sequence definition database contents page.
Enter your query using the dropdown search box - additional terms can be added by clicking the ‘+’ button.
Designations can be queried using standard operators.
Click the hyperlinked results to display allele records.
Various search criteria can also be selected by combining with filters. Click the filter heading to display these.
Locus-specific sequence attribute search¶
Some loci have extended attribute fields. To query these, click ‘By locus’ in the ‘Find alleles’ section on a sequence definition database contents page.
Pick the required locus from the dropdown box.
The fields specific for that locus will be added to the dropdown query boxes.
The query form can be modified by clicking the ‘Modify form options’ tab:
A list box can be added by clicking the ‘Show’ button for ‘Allele id list box’.
Close the form modification tab and you can now enter a list of allele ids for retrieval.
Various analysis and export options will be available for use on the retrieved sequences. These include FASTA output and Locus Explorer analysis.
