Gene and Allele Search Help

The MMRRC's Strain Search Form allows investigators to search for genes or alleles by their name or symbol. Search field options may be combined with each other, e.g. "Cre" Gene/Allele Symbol with "GENSAT" Major Collection. Searches are case insensitive (agouti, Agouti and AGOUTI all match). You may elect a full match (with "equals") or partial matches (using "begins", "contains", or "ends"). Searches for genes include all alleles of the gene, while a search for a specific allele includes only the matching allele.

For additional flexibility in creating SQL "like" text matches, the Gene/Allele Symbol/Name text field also accepts SQL wildcards ("%" and "_") for use with the contains, begins, and ends operators.
