Searching for chromosomal diseases in Genatlas
Each entry is designated by a symbol, in capital letters and without
punctuation, as follows: a short item identifying the type of rearrangement
For instance the 9q34 subtelomeric deletion is designated DEL9Q34.
From the Phenotype database (pink color), there are different ways to search for a chromosomal disease when you do not know its symbol. Two examples are given here:
· Go to optional (below full text query)
Alternatively, if you search for a specific type of imbalance, you may use the Symbol search box:
type the imbalance symbol (
· in the search results list , click the relevant symbol to open the corresponding Genatlas phenotype page
The Full text search box may also be used to search a chromosomal disease by its name, such as Williams or DiGeorge
From the Genatlas phenotype page, clicking References in the upper line (dark blue) will give you access to a list of relevant references, and a click on a title will open the corresponding abstract in PubMed.
If a corresponding gene is mentioned in the Genatlas phenotype page, a click on the gene symbol will open the corresponding Genatlas gene page.
