Gene supplies gene-specific connections in the nexus of map, sequence, expression, structure, function, citation, and homology data. Unique identifiers are assigned to genes with defining sequences, genes with known map positions, and genes inferred from phenotypic information. These gene identifiers are used throughout NCBI's databases and tracked through updates of annotation.
This is the EBSCOHost version of Medline. EBSCOHost's search system allows the searcher to do very precise keyword searches, but requires a familiarity with Boolean, Proximity, and Truncation Operations; as well as a logical approach to developing search strategies. Contact Richard Jizba in the HSL for tutoring or see the search guides.
PubMed is the NLM version of Medline in addition to miscellaneous other journal content. If you use PubMed regularly you should set up a My NCBI account and take advantage of the ability to customize "filters."
Web of Science
Web of Science is a multidisciplinary database that covers the literature of the basic, applied, and social sciences. Coverage includes biomedicine and all areas of biology, chemistry, physics, geology, agriculture, medical research, sociology, psychology, and others. Coverage is broad but is limited to the 'significant' journals in each discipline. WoS provides CITATION SEARCH functions which complement traditional keyword approaches to searching.
Chem Abstracts and related databases. SciFinder provides databases for articles and patents, substances, and reactions. You need to register for an individual account. There are online tutorials and webinars which you should review before attempting a serious project. Registration managed by Reinert Library: Registration Link
