Create a Custom Filter

Monday, April 7th, 2014

Setting up a filter from within your My NCBI account can be useful when you want to keep certain options available all the time. In the image below, I am signed into My NCBI and I searched for cystic fibrosis. Notice the filters that display on the right side of the screen. These are all the filters that I previously chose to display…no matter what. The number of results are displayed next to each filter even when there are no results, as with the Arabic filter in the image.

Using your My NCBI account, you can take this one step further and create a custom filter that will always display on the right side when you are logged into your account.

Watch this short video to learn how to create a custom filter.
