ADPriboDB Database: Guided Tutorial Tour

Search the Database


Learn a few tips and tricks to help you easily find information on ADPriboDB.




No matter what you're looking for, start with a simple search like Histone or the UniProt ID of your protein of interest. You can always add a few descriptive words if necessary.
If you're looking for a gene or protein in a specific species, add the species. For example, try to type Human Histone in 'Any Field'. See below for more refined search options.




Be Specific

  • When you're deciding what words to put in the search box, try to choose words that are likely to appear in the entry you’re looking for.  For example, instead of searching Histone, try Histone H1


Pay Attention to The Details

  • Spelling. There is no spell checker, so make sure to spell your search terms correctly. 
  • Capitalization. A search for PARP1 is the same as a search for parp1.


Use 'Advanced Search' to Narrow Results

For many searches, ADPriboDB's general search bar will do the work for you and show an answer to your question in the search results. Some advanced search settings can be accessed by clicking the 'Advanced Search' link, which will drop down a list of additional search fields which you can use to narrow down your search, like filtering information by mono or poly, year, or UniProt ID.

Filter and Sort Results

Sorting allows you to rearrange entires in a particular order, while filtering enables you to hide all unecesary data and display only the specific information you need.



Field-Specific Search Box

An easy way to search within a specific field is to double-click on the field heading, which will pop-up a search textbox for field-specific filtering and search.
