Advanced Molecular Genetics Database Search Tool
The Advanced Molecular Genetics Database Search Tool app (say that ten times fast) by Exiqon provides users access to a number of transcriptome databases (with an emphasis on micro RNAs) via a simple and easy-to-navigate interface. Users start by selecting their species of interest—human, mouse, or rat—and then search by gene name, disease, tissue, or keyword. (Searching by gene name appears to work best, as many disease names or keywords yielded either “no results” or “too many results.”) For any given gene, a list of regulating miRNAs (empirical or predicted) is provided. Selecting any listed miRNA displays the original literature citation. As the app is a product of a company, users can also explore the various Exiqon products available for miRNA experiments.
