This search can be performed separately on NCI-Nature curated data, BioCarta data or Reactome data (see Database content).

For searches of NCI-Nature curated or Reactome data, the biomolecule name or identifier query text can be:

For BioCarta data, the biomolecule name or identifier search can be:

The following options can be used to modify the search:

To search specific pathways, enter:

The Browse Pathways page allows users to view all pathways in the database.

To search specific biological processes, enter:

Searches of NCI-Nature curated data can be limited by evidence code; the default is to include data with any or no evidence code.

Check boxes are provided to expand the initial search results by interactions one degree upstream or downstream. Selecting these options might allow the search results to be combined into a single network map when connections between otherwise distinct networks are found during the search.

Connected Molecules Search

Figure 14

For the set of query biomolecules, this search will attempt to construct a single network with the fewest connecting interactions.

The search can be performed separately on NCI-Nature Curated data or BioCarta data (see Database content).

For searches of NCI-Nature Curated or Reactome data, the seach text can be:

For BioCarta data, the search text can be:

Batch Query

Figure 15

This query can be performed separately on NCI-Nature curated data, BioCarta data or Reactome data (see Database content). The user can upload one or two files containing molecule names or identifiers listed in a single column.

For queries of NCI-Nature Curated or Reactome data, the uploaded lists can contain any combination of:

For BioCarta data, the uploaded lists can contain any combination of:
