SimpleMine Users' Guide
SimpleMine is designed for biologists who want to get essential information for a list of genes without any command-line or programming skill. We consider the following as "essential information" based on user feedback. Please feel free to contact us if you want to include more information in the list.
Names, Identifiers, Sequences, Species
WormBase Gene ID
Reference UniProt ID
Genetics, Phenotypes, Interactions
Genetic Map Position
RNAi Phenotype Observed
Allele Phenotype Observed
Coding_exon Non_silent Allele: Among those alleles that were sequenced, we exclude polymorphisms and alleles that fall in an intron, 5' UTR or 3' UTR.
Interacting Gene: We only display experimentally confirmed gene interactions.
Expr_pattern Tissue: Anatomical expression based on GFP, immunoprecipitation, In_situ, etc.
Genomic Study Tissue: Tissue enrichment based on microarray, RNA-Seq, and proteomics studies.
Expr_pattern LifeStage: Developmental expression based on GFP, immunoprecipitation, In_situ, etc.
Genomic Study LifeStage: Developmental expression based on microarray, RNA-Seq, and proteomics studies.
Human Orthologs and Disease
Functional Annotation and References
Gene Ontology Association: Gene Ontology terms that were annotated to the gene.
Concise Description: Outdated manually written descriptions of the gene functions.
Automated Description: Up-to-date gene description machine generated based on the current WormBase data.
Expression Cluster Summary: Gene regulation, molecular regulation, and tissue enrichment summary based on microarray, RNA-Seq, and proteomics studies.
