Phenotype annotations in dictyBase. All phenotypes are constructed using the Entity-Quality model. A. Each dictyBase Gene Page has a section listing strains and phenotypes relevant to that gene. B. Querying dictyBase for phrases such as 'abolished aggregation' returns all strains annotated to that term, the gene(s) mutated in that strain, and the reference describing the phenotype. Show here are four annotations to 'abolished aggregation' out of 79 strains annotated to that phenotype.
