iBeetle-Base: a database for RNAi phenotypes in the red flour beetle Tribolium castaneum.
Bottom Line: The phenotypes are described according to the EQM (entity, quality, modifier) system using controlled vocabularies and the Tribolium morphological ontology (TrOn).Furthermore, images linked to the respective annotations are provided.The data are searchable either for specific phenotypes using a complex 'search for morphological defects' or a 'quick search' for gene names and IDs.

Mentions: Clicking the search button will retrieve an overview of the search results (Figure 2). In the resulting table all annotations fitting the search criteria are listed along with the EQM annotations (Figure 2, arrow a) and respective penetrance (Figure 2, arrow b). Previews of the images documenting the respective annotations can be displayed in different sizes. Further information on the gene and additional phenotypes can be found upon click on the details page (see below). Based on these pieces of information the user can deselect data sets (Figure 2, arrow c) and a consolidated list is provided upon clicking on ‘Refresh’. The resulting list can be exported or saved (Figure 2, arrow d).
