What can I do with modMine?
Enter any identifier or symbol in the search box on the modMine home page to access summary pages and integrated tools.
- for the Drosophila gene zen, type FBgn0004053, CG1046, zen or any of its synonyms.
- for C. elegans genes, use the WormBase identifiers or symbols (eg. M117.2, WBGene00003920, par-5).
- for proteins use UniProt identifiers or primary accessions (eg. 18C_DROME, P16909).
Browse Data Categories
modMine presents data in categories, with each providing information on a particular type of data (for example Gene Expression or Protein Interactions). Use the icons in the Data box on the modMine home page to run a predefined template query or to build your own query (see below). Certain template queries, as well as the
QueryBuilder itself, allow you to perform searches that span data from more than one category.
Run Template Queries
A number of specific queries have been predefined. These template queries range from fairly simple queries to retrieve a particular type of data to more complex queries that span the different types of data available in modMine. More template queries will be added as modMine develops and we welcome suggestions. Find lists of predefined template queries in each data category or use the templates page to search through them.
Advanced users can use a flexible query interface to construct their own data mining queries across the multiple integrated data sources, to modify existing template queries or to create your own template queries.
Operate on Lists
All queries in modMine can be performed on lists of data. Lists can be created by typing or pasting in identifiers, or uploading a file. Data from previous queries can also be saved into a list using the boxes displayed underneath the query results. Saved lists of data can be used to constrain new queries, perform logical operations and can be analysed on a page that shows graphs, summary tables and statistics.
modMine now includes a number of public lists that we create and make available from published sources.
You can save your lists, queries and templates between sessions by creating an account using the ‘Log in’ link in the header of every page.
