At the top right of every page is the ubiquitous search box allowing you to look for topics of interest.
When you search SciBITES, the system will try to map your query to our topic tags.
If your query matches a
topic tag exactly, you will be taken directly to the newstream page for that tag. You can prevent this by
adding an asterisk. For instance, a search for cathepsin
will take you to the entry for the protein group "Cathepsin". But you may have wanted to search for a specific member of
this family. Adding an asterisk cathepsin*
will now take you
to a list of results, from which you can select as shown on the right.
From time to time you may see the following (here we searched for 'physician'):
The term "physician" is not one we currently index at the topic tag level, so we were unable to go directly to a newsstream.
However, SciBITES will allow you to retrieve news on any text keyword or phrase, so just click on the "search article text..." link
and you will see the news where your query term is mentioned.
