A first look at our views

The tabs are split into four main areas (Figure 9).

Top section [blue]. The top section contains general information on the data in the tab selected. For example, in the gene tab it contains the gene name and ID, the gene's location and a button to view a table of the transcripts. 

Bottom section [green]. This section contains more specific information relating to the view. It is represented in either graphic or tabular format. For example, on the gene tab it contains the gene summary which displays the transcripts on the chromosome.  

Displays [pink]. The displays on the left-hand side are specific to the tab you are on; you can access more information on the data of interest. For example, on the gene tab, from the links in the 'Gene-based displays' section you can access information such as: splice variants, the gene sequence, homologues and variation data.

Configuring and managing your data [yellow]. The options in these boxes allow you to configure the data (i.e. change the data types) displayed in the main sections (top and bottom) of the page, to manage your data (i.e. upload your own information) and export it.


Note!  When you navigate between views in one tab, only the bottom section [green] changes. The top section [blue] remains the same. Open the gene tab and click on another view like 'Sequence' to see this.
