Improved search for eukaryotic and viral proteins and gene names


NCBI previously announced improved search functionality to provide users with better results for common language queries. We have expanded this search capability beyond queries for species-qualified gene symbols (e.g. human GhrI) to support species-qualified protein names (e.g. human obestatin) and gene names (e.g. human ghrelin and obestatin prepropeptide) in eukaryotes and viruses. Whether you are searching for a gene, transcript, or protein, our updated featured results panel displays the relevant information. The results panel for the selected gene includes quick links to many resources including transcripts, protein products, and publications.
