Advanced Protein Search

The advanced protein search page provides a graphical user interface to assist the user in filtering proteins based on a combination of criteria querying 20 different fields in the database.

When the user submits a search, a URL is constructed with the corresponding parameters and submitted as a GET request. This URL can be reused to keep track of favorite search combinations (the ability to save searches within FPbase is in development, at the time of publication). For instance, the following search URL would return all monomeric, constitutively fluorescent (non-photochromic) proteins published since 2010 that have an emission maximum between 500-560 and are relatively bright compared to other similarly-colored proteins in the database:
