A gene, in the context of GeneLinkerô, consists of an identifier of a specific type, an optional short name, optional description, and an associated lookup URL.
Please note that gene identifiers have a length restriction of 25 characters. This means that on import of a dataset or a gene list, identifiers that are longer than 25 characters are truncated.
Genes are imported into your GeneLinkerô database when you import a dataset or a gene list. All of the genes in your database are listed in an alphabetical list in the Genes navigator. Genes can be annotated, looked up in an external database, or included in a gene list.
