Physical and genetic interactions are described in the help wiki, accessed via the top menu bar on the page you linked to. Physical interactions refer to experiments where the gene product (protein) has been shown to physically interact with another protein, such as by co-immunoprecipitation, fluorescent staining, yeast two-hybrid system, etc. Genetic ...


TL;DR: Chymosin is similar to pepsin and I couldn't find any evidence of functional/expressed chymosin gene in human genome. It seems like a common misconception that chymosin is functional in humans. Already in 1940s it has been shown that rennin (aka chymosin) is absent from "gastric juice" in adult humans. Genetically there is only pseudo-gene for ...


take the gene names and copy all of them, next open an online tool called gene mania. paste all your genes on the window. you will get their interaction and other related genes. Now go to a database called gene cards and type in all the gene you got from gene mania and paste it one after the other to get useful information about the individual genes. some of ...


Also try putting the list through Reactome or String DB to see if you see mapping to certain pathways. http://string-db.org/ You can also put lists through ConceptGen to carry out ontology based analyses http://portal.ncibi.org/gateway/conceptgen.html


Was getting long in the comments. In light of your comments, you might be interested in Gene-set enrichment analysis (GSEA). You can do a GSEA using your set, the other one coming from reference databases such as MSigDB (see here). You can categorize your list by gene families using this technique for example. You can get an idea of what cellular process ...


It depends; what species are the genes from? Some organisms have extensively annotated genomes, and actively curated species-specific databases, while other species may not even have a reference genome sequence available. By itself, a priori, if you were lucky, about all you list would tell you was how to spell the names of those genes--if you're lucky. But ...


I would suggest searching the name in any trusted genetics database such as NCBI's GenBank (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genbank/). You can just Google search it, but it may take a little longer to find useful information that way. I hope this helps and good luck with your research, CDB
