CGD Search Options


All the search options listed below search for information within the Candida Genome Database

X  CGD Basic Searches
Note: All searches are case insensitive; wildcard character (*) ok; only last names of colleagues are searched
CGD Quick Search:
Use a keyword to simultaneously search by major categories of information in CGD (gene name, locus description, GO terms, GO IDs, phenotypes, colleagues, authors, PubMed IDs, biochemical pathway names, orthologs and best hits in S. cerevisiae and other Candida species. Examples: 'ACT1', 'orf19.2203', 'orf6.1022', 'transcription', 'Smith'. The asterisk character (*) may be used as a wild card.
CGD Text Search:
Use a keyword to simultaneously search all of the categories of information in CGD that are included in the Quick Search, plus locus history notes, paper abstracts, and gene name descriptions.
X  CGD Advanced Searches

Advanced Search
Find a chromosomal feature (e.g., gene, ORF, centromere) based on selected criteria (e.g., chromosome number, GO-Slim terms, etc.)
Full-text Literature Search
Customizable keyword searching of the full-text of over 16,500 Candida journal articles with Textpresso, a tool developed at Wormbase
Batch Download
Simultaneous retrieval of multiple types of data for a list of gene or feature names
Expanded Phenotype Search
Search the text of all phenotype information to find phenotypes of interest and view the genes associated with them, or browse the entire list of phenotype terms
GO Slim Mapper
This tool determines to which GO-slim terms a set of Candida genes is annotated
GO Term Finder
This tool determines the signficant GO terms that a set of Candida genes shares in common

X  Specialized Pathway Searches

Pathway Query Page
Search biochemical pathway information in CGD, using the query functionality integral to the Pathway Tools software.

X  Specialized Gene and Sequence Searches

Gene/Sequence Resources (Get Sequence)
Retrieve, display, and analyze a gene or sequence in many ways, such as protein translation and restriction mapping.

Compare any query sequence against various Candida datasets
