The gene list search allows users to enter a list of gene names or accessions (limit of 1 entry per line and a maximum of 20 gene ID’s on Free tier, or unlimited with Pro). The names/accession IDs need to match (partial matches are not enabled) the gene names/ids stored in the knowledge network. Tools like the Ensembl ID converter can be used to convert old gene ID’s to those supported by KnetMiner.
If you have a list of genes and no idea about their function, simply paste your gene ids/names into the Gene List box (without any keywords) and let KnetMiner provide a summary of all information it has for your genes, their location, and enriched linked terms. You can then view their individual knowledge networks. Searching by this method will not rank genes; only paths from gene to trait and phenotype nodes will initially be shown in this instance. However, if you combine your gene list with keywords, KnetMiner will be able to rank your gene list based on relevance and highlight the most interesting paths of the knowledge network accordingly.
Underneath the Gene List Search box, a tally of how many genes you have inputted is displayed.
For wheat specifically: as of KnetMiner 5.6, we support using Wheat 1.2 and 2.1 gene ids.
