How to search our databases
The BioloMICSNet Software facilitates interrogation of the available databases.
The Basic search allows you to search on any kind of field.
Should you need to build more complex queries, then the Advanced search (
) will allow you to customize the query.

Similarity based on on-line pair-wise alignments
The BioloMICSNet Software facilitates identifications by the performance of on-line
pair-wise and probabilistic sequences (DNA and/or Proteins) identifications.

Polyphasic online identification
The BioloMICSNet Software has facilitated performance of on-line polyphasic identifications since the first version produced in 1999.
Depending on the databases and the criteria that are available, a wide range of characteristics can be entered, combined and analyzed to obtain an identification of an unknown.
The more criteria used, the more likely the identification will be reliable. The current on-line version of the software also facilitates for the production of phenetic trees.

Deposit of user's data
BioloMICSNet users willing to deposit their data or to order items using the cart system, will have to register.
We need to be able to contact the depositor/client For specific information (e.g. BioloMICSNet number, possible points of clarification,
for example regarding the name, actual date of publication, etc), and we also need to ensure all entries are genuine.
To register for the first time follow the steps below:
1. Enter your email address (see
Register New User), click on the 'Create New Profile' button to receive a provisional password by email (this is to make sure that the provided email is real and
that you are the person that can open the given email).

Enter your email and password (obtained by email). Click on the "Login" button and access the BioloMICSNet profile form where personal information has to be entered.
Change the password and personalize it. Click on the "Save profile" button.
You will then be registered and ready to deposit new items (strains, species, etc) or to order items on-line via the Cart system.
