[ Video: Navigating Entity Types, Navigating Connections Between Entity Types, Viewing Entity Lineage ]

You can search the Biologics Registry in the following ways:

Registry-Wide Search

To search the entire repository, enter your search terms on the home page, or click Search in the top navigation bar.

Results are displayed as tiles, as shown below.

Click Advanced to filter by Entity Type. The dropdown is populated by the entity types known to the system.

Select the desired type and click Search. Results will be filtered to only the entity type selected.

Grid Search

A search bar appears above all grid views. For example, if you select Registry > Molecules you can sort and filter the grid as follows.

You can enter multiple criteria in the search bar, clicking to select from the menu, then adding any number of filters, keywords, and sorts.

  • filter columns - Enter an expression consisting of a column, a comparator, and a value. The selection menus will present the list of available options to assist you. The grid will display only those rows where the expression is true (for the selected column). The screenshot below shows the Structure Format column filtered for the value 'Fv'.

To add a new filter, search, or sort, click in the search bar outside the filter expression. To add a keyword search, select keyword search, then type into the search bar.

  • keyword search - Keyword searches behave like substring searches across all of the rows in the table, not just the rows currently displayed in the browser. But the search is limited to only those columns that are currently visible in the browser. Hidden columns are not searched. To control which columns are visible and which are hidden, see Biologics Admin: Grids, Detail Views, and Entry Forms.
  • sort columns - Sorts control the order in which rows are displayed. Below we have sorted the Name column from low to high values (note this is an alphabetical sort, not numerical).

You can also control the sort order by clicking the icon in the column headers.
