AspGD Help: Literature Guide



The Literature Guide categorizes literature into different topics, helping you sift through the papers about a given gene to find the particular information that you need. AspGD performs a search through all PubMed literature for all papers mentioning that locus and any aliases. (See PubMed Search for more details on how that search is performed). AspGD curators read the abstracts of those papers, review the full text when available, and assign the papers to one or more Topics that describe the kind of biological information contained in the abstracts. Please note, however, that since sometimes only abstracts are read, the Literature Topics are not necessarily a complete description of the information contained in the papers.

Organization of the Literature Guide

PubMed Search

We search PubMed for papers associated with genus and species name keywords. We also search for gene names that we have already recorded in the database. When you publish, please be sure that the abstract includes the name of the organism(s) and name of the gene(s) studied. Inclusion of the systematic gene name(s) in the text, as well as the genetic or standard names, is important to ensure unambiguous identification of the genes during curation. Please let us know if you think our search has missed a paper.
