Use this to accelerate incorporation of published data into FlyBase

You can:

  • determine if a publication has been curated by FlyBase
  • submit a citation for a publication not currently in FlyBase
  • provide information on types of data in a publication to help prioritize further curation
  • associate genes with a publication to link Gene and Reference reports in FlyBase
  • provide information on antibodies in a publication

 

Step 1: Lookup a publication and its curation status in FlyBase

Search for Publication with Keywords
 
Try searching with an author, a year and part of a journal title. For example, enter "Adams 2000 Science" (without the quotes). Or, try searching with a PubMed ID (PMID). For example, enter "10731132" (without the quotes). Also note that wild cards (*) can be added to your search terms.
The database searched by this tool contains only items classified by FlyBase as 'papers' or 'reviews'.

Step 3:

Indicate Data Types in Publication
Please indicate if your paper reports the generation of a new classical allele or chromosomal aberration in a Drosophilid genome; e.g. an EMS-induced mutation, P-element excision or insertion, chromosomal deletion or duplication.
Please indicate if your paper reports the generation of a new transgenic construct; e.g. UAS transgenes, genomic rescue transgenes, RNAi transgenes.
Please indicate if your paper reports the use of a stable Drosophila cell line.
Please indicate if your paper reports the initial characterization of a Drosophilid gene.
Please indicate if your paper suggests that two or more Gene Reports should be merged; e.g. you have mapped a previously unlocalised complementation group to an existing gene model or mapped gene.
Please indicate if your paper suggests a new gene symbol or name for an existing Gene Report in FlyBase; e.g. you suggest the rename of a CG number.
Please indicate if your publication describes a set of Drosophila genes or gene products that share a common biological and/or molecular function. Includes members of a gene family or components of a protein complex.
Please indicate if your paper reports new temporal or spatial expression data (e.g. tissue, subcellular) of any D. melanogaster gene in a wild-type background; e.g. reporter gene analysis, antibody staining, In situ hybridization, RT-PCR, Western or Northern blot data.
Please indicate if your paper includes expression data of any D. melanogaster gene in a mutant background, or after exposure to chemicals, or changes in temperature, or any other environmental perturbation; e.g. reporter gene analysis, antibody staining, In situ hybridization, RT-PCR, Western or Northern blot data.
Please indicate if your paper reports novel phenotypic data; e.g. based on mutant analysis, over-expression of a transgene, or genetic interactions.
Please indicate if your paper reports physical interactions involving D. melanogaster proteins or RNA; e.g. yeast two-hybrid, co-immuniprecipitaton (Co-IP), GST pull down. If you have a protein:DNA interaction, please use the "cis-regulatory elements" flag instead.
Please indicate if your paper includes new experimental data relevant to the model of transcript or polypeptide structure for a D. melanogaster gene; e.g. the discovery of new splice variants, additional exons/introns, corrections to the polypeptide.
Please indicate if your paper reports D. melanogaster molecular mapping data; e.g. mapping at the sequence level of alleles, insertion sites, rescue fragments or aberration breakpoints.
Please indicate if your paper includes new experimental data defining cis-regulatory elements of D. melanogaster genes at the sequence level. e.g. enhancers, transcription factor binding sites, boundary elements or microRNA target sequences.
Please indicate if your paper characterizes a previously uncharacterized or poorly characterized aspect of wild-type Drosophila anatomy; e.g. description of a new cell type or nervous system part.
Please indicate if your publication reports experimental data for a Drosophila model of human disease. We define a disease model as any modification of Drosophila (e.g. mutation of Drosophila genes, introduction of human genes into flies, chemical exposure, infection or environmental change) resulting in a phenotype that recapitulates some aspect of the human disease. Please enter the name(s) of the relevant disease(s) in the text area below. Separate multiple diseases by placing them each on their own line; i.e.:
heart disease
Parkinson's disease
Enter disease name(s) by placing each on its own line:


Please indicate if none of the data types described above are relevant to your paper.
 

Step 4: Identify genes that are experimental subjects of the publication

Associate Genes with This Publication
No help text for this option yet.
Publications with associated genes will be cited most quickly in FlyBase. If you indicate genes that are dealt with in your paper here, this publication will be included in the FlyBase gene report for that gene at the earliest possible FlyBase release; usually between 4 and 12 weeks from the date of this submission.
