For our site, we want to create gene pages with sequences and have those pages link back to JGI where we obtained the genes. Therefore, we want to add a database reference for JGI. To add a new external databases, navigate to Tripal → Chado Modules → Databases and click the link titled Add a Database. The resulting page provides fields for adding a new database:
Enter the following values for the fields:
- Name: Phytozome
- Description: Phytozome is a joint project of the Department of Energy's Joint Genome Institute and the Center for Integrative Genomics to facilitate comparative genomic studies amongst green plants
- URL: http://www.phytozome.net/
- URL prefix: http://www.phytozome.net/genePage.php?search=1&detail=1&er=1&crown&method=0&searchText=transcriptid%3A
The URL prefix is important as it will be used to create the links on our gene pages. Our gene name will be appended to this URL to create the link that will take us to the corresponding gene page on Flybase.
We now have added a new database!
