Can I use my own list of genes?

Yes! These can be uploaded via the list uploader on the front page or on the 'Lists' tab. The 'Lists' tab also allows you to select the species - useful if you are uploading gene symbols. Your list can then be used in all relevant queries.

How do I download data?

Once you have run a query it is possible to export the results using the export button on the header bar above the table (see screenshot below). The export button provides several options.   


Select the format you would like such as TSV (suitable for MS Excel) to export the whole table. It is also possible to include additional columns in the results and reorder them by selecting the 'choose columns' button. To export a subset of the results select the 'Specific Range' button. Once you have made your selections simply click the green 'Download' button.
