Search for your gene and get started with your research now!

A research project will often center around one gene, or one small group of genes, and researchers will use any and all molecular tools at their disposal to study them. Overexpress it! Knock it down! Disrupt its regulators! Our online gene search gives you a simple starting point to find all of those tools in one place.

Type in any common identifier, like gene ID, accession number, gene symbol, miRBase accession, or gene description into the Search field to find all RNAi, gene expression, and gene editing products available to target your gene of interest. You can also view associated information known about your gene’s function, its biological pathways, and known interactions to help you make informed decisions on which experiments to perform and what tools to use.

For each gene, we have a wide range of technologies to study associated functions, including:

  • siRNA
  • shRNA
  • microRNA
  • crRNA
  • sgRNA
  • cDNAs and ORFs (mammalian and non-mammalian)
  • ESTs

Viewing Networks and Pathways

In addition to all of the available products targeting your gene of interest (and recommended controls), a comprehensive gene summary will also be displayed as part of the gene search results, which includes known biological processes and associations with other molecules, protein domains and molecular functions. There is also an interaction networks view that allows for filtering on other molecules known to interact with your gene of interest within a certain biological context such as subcellular location, tissue or disease. Lastly, there is a biological pathways view that allows you to browse through any pathways that your gene of interest is known to be a part of, and easily view and choose other genes which may be worth investigating further.

What if you don’t know which genes are involved in your biological system? No problem! Enter a term like “antiviral response” or “T cell signaling”. You can view pathway diagrams of entire gene networks, and then click on the genes you are most interested in.
