Frequently asked questions

Q: What can I find in TiRe?

A: Genes that are directly associated with skin wound healing, which were identified in in vivo experiments on mice, rats, swine or humans.

Q: I know that my gene of interest is involved in skin wound healing but I cannot find it in TiRe.

A: First, please notice that only genes that were tested in an in vivo skin wound healing model were included in TiRe (see help/methods). Second, in this build, we included only evidence based on direct interventions (again, see help/methods) - we are planning for future builds to also include data based on gene expression changes. Considering all of the above, if you think that we missed a gene - PLEASE LET US KNOW, and we'll include it in our next build!

Q: What types of interventions were used to establish an involvement of a specific gene in skin wound healing?

A: You can find the answer in help/methods.

Q: There are many experimental models of skin wound healing. Which ones were employed for the TiRe genes?

A: You can find the relevant info on the experimental model in the gene description page or in the downloadable table (see help/user guide).

Q: How can I download the data for offline analysis?

A: From the download page page, you have the option of downloading the entire database.

Q: Q: How do I cite TiRe?

A: A scientific paper describing this database is currently under preparation. If you would like to cite this database in the meantime, we ask you to please contact us.
