cancer database

For a medical professor in cancer research, we set up a searchable online database. The database holds cancer related gene expression data collected from different studies. I implemented two different search modes, which search either for a probe or for a gene expression scenario. The list of search results includes links to the biological protein databases at the NCBI and Uniprot, as well as links to PubMed, a biomedical publication database.

Probe search for a probe identified by the protein name “keratin”.

Expression profile search: a logical search that is a chain of simple search queries connected by AND or OR.
