Querying by Gene

One of the most common ways users want to search is by gene or genes of interest.

On this page:

Searching by gene name or symbol

Enter a gene symbol/name (or synonym) in either of the following ways:

  • Use the search box on the homepage ( (See Figure 1)
  • Use the menu navigation (BROWSE DATA > Gene Search) to go to the Gene page and either use the Gene facet in the left sidebar or type in the gene name in the field above the search results

The results include GUDMAP records that contain information about the expression of the gene or genes of interest and any available related data in our repository.

The Available Expression Data and Representative Images columns indicate the kinds of data available for that gene.

Batch querying

You can also search for multiple genes at the same time. See Batch Querying for more information.

Available filters for genes

The filtering sidebar allows you to narrow you search by the following filtering categories:

Filter category Use this filter to search by…
