Screenshot of search results from a sample query showing microarray expression data for selected genes in T2D-Db (A-F). (A) Search page for entering the gene and/or organism name. (B) In the 'Search by Experiments' option, if the user selects an organism, the microarray experiment along with the corresponding genes present in the candidate gene list will be displayed. The user can also specify other genes in 'Add Gene(s)' section. (C) The user can search for patterns of gene expression present in multiple studies by using the 'Select by Genes across multiple experiments' option. Here on selecting the organism same kind of gene list will be displayed. (D) & (E) After submitting the query as mentioned in (B) and (C) output pages will be displayed, which contain the gene symbol, corresponding probe id and expression values across different samples for the corresponding selected genes. (F) Selection of desired gene entries and clicking on "Select gene(s) to view Heatmap" facilitates visualization of the heatmap to represent the expression pattern graphically. The red, green and yellow colours describe increased, no change and decreased expression respectively.
