caBIO Portlet Simple Search Overview

caBIO is a resource that integrates biomedical data on genes, proteins, clinical protocols, disease ontologies, pharmacological agents, pathways, and other entities with annotations, controlled vocabularies, and metadata models originating from twenty-three data sources, including the Cancer Gene Index, the Pathway Interaction Database, and the University of California, Santa Cruz Distributed Annotation System. You can use the Simple Search to query these data.


The caBIO Portlet Simple Search tool retrieves caBIO objects that have attributes that match a gene, disease, or compound term name; however, retrieved objects are not grouped by type and you may have to scroll through dozens of search result pages to find all Cancer Gene Index-associated objects.


It is highly recommended that you use the Cancer Gene Index Gene-Disease and Gene-Compound XML documents, caBIO Portlet Templated Search, or even the caBIO Portal instead of the caBIO Portlet Simple Search tool. Please refer to the documentation main page to decide which of these options is best for you.

Should you still want to use the Simple Search, links to guides are given below.
