*PANTHER provides data for only seven different species. GFFST provides data for only human and mouse. The table shows which information is accessible via the corresponding databases or tools. The entries in each cell stand for (in this order): b, search by; f, search for; c, may be combined with other types. Hyphens "-" indicate a lack of the corresponding functionality.
