Quick Text Search
This query allows all the entries in EpoDB to be accessed by a Boolean text search. DNA searches look at the GenBank definition line, species name, reference gene status (ref or 0), and molecule type (dna or rna) and EPoDB and GenBank IDs. Protein searches look at taxonomy, name, and IDs for EpoDB, Swiss-Prot, EMBL and Medline.

Enter Query...The search is case insensitive and will accept ( ) and " " delimiters! Help with syntax
