Subsequent filtering may be performed on the results page. All identifiers entered below must be of the same type, i.e. All gene symbols or all drug identifiers.

Additional Term lookups:
In this section, using BioDBNet's API, gene and drug terms specified in the above query are used as seeds to further filter the Medline Searches. For more information on the databases used to construct BioDBNet's query, please see our FAQs.

Section III - Phrase Query

In this box, you can choose to search for a phrase and its proximity to other terms. For example, you may choose to search for the words "cancer death" within 4 words of each other. This query would return articles with terms like "Cancer: death" and "death rates from cancer". This query will not find "death by cancer". Distance refers to the number of words between query terms.

Custom Counts by Terms or Phrases

In this box, you can paste a list of terms to quickly custom filter your results and add them to your visualizations. For example, if you have a gene list, paste it in the box, and you will have the option to find counts by these terms. On the results page, this allows you to do AND/OR combinations of these terms in the articles without pre-filtering them.
