August 22, 2016
SGD is pleased to introduce our new faceted search, replete with new features that make navigating SGD easier than ever. It’s simple to get started – just click on the “Try this?” button on the SGD homepage
. Try a search for your favorite gene or your favorite topic of study in our improved search box! We have also introduced a sleek new look that retains the same familiar features and menus, but is now optimized for mobile use.
New features of the search include:
- Superior search box functionality: New autocomplete options connect to information faster than ever
- Sorting options: Results sorted alphabetically, by relevance, and by number of annotations
- Download gene lists: Export gene lists from search results into a text file with the “Wrapped” and “Download” options
- Faceted searching: Narrow search results by using categories like Genes, Molecular Functions, Phenotypes, and more!
