      • Gene query ( eg. gene:snca) has a bug, when you change a gene preference for a given gene query you have to change/re-enter the text in the search text box for the query to work.
      • A lot of spurious results are returned because of abbreviations that get included in the search box with synonyms. Try removing them from the search box to narrow your results.

For the developers, we have published data access and tools using open standard based application programming interfaces that can be used by the developers to access and use programmatically. More information about NIF services is available at the Developers Page.
