The Data Extractor is a high level data search engine which allows users to construct complex or constrained queries and to select or display search results from the CCDB, CCRD and CCMD databases. To use the Data Extractor select one or more key words from any of the scrollable boxes in the left frame. To select more than one keyword, hold down the Ctrl key while clicking on the the key word. Once you have selected the words or fields you wish to search, press the "Go" button. This will cause a form to appear in the middle frame which will display the keywords and empty text boxes which the user must fill in. By clicking the "Submit" button the Extractor will search the databases for all of the chosen fields or items satsifying the query constraints and return a hyper-linked list or table. This list may be re-formatted or the information saved in various formats (see bottom of list). The data may also be plotted as a picture on the E. coli chromosome by pressing the "Plot" button located at the bottom of the output page.

How to enter multiple values in one entry(keyword)?
Type the multiple values directly in the text box provided,
and specify the "&" for AND or "|"for OR keyword for the job you are
intended to perform; i.e.:
'alpha & beta'
'Alpha | beta'

Unfortunately, for now, this feature available only on the Structure_CLASS
and Gene Name keywords.

How to use the wildcard?
You can use the wildcard('*') for general search. For example, if you search
for "B37*" for the blattner number, it will returns B3702, B3773, or if you
search "Name= Aldehyde", it will find all the string that contains "aldehyde","formaldehyde", etc.

Do I need the % sign when I need to search the prosentage value of Cystein/Methionine content?
The answer is NO. You don't need the % sign.
All the unit(s) related to a numeric value is not needed.

Do I have to put the whole range of gene position number?
No, you don't have to put the whole range of the gene position you are looking for.
For instances, you are seaching the gene position between 1712401-1713006.
You are free to type the whole range or you just have to type the first
number only, in this case will be 1712401. Or you can put 171*, it will find
all gene position that contain 171 i.e: 1712401-1713006 or 1692256-1710345.
NOTE: You have to specify the 'Forward strand' or 'Reverse strand' by checking
the appropriate button. The default is Forward strand.
