The search box will accept partial (case-insensitive) search terms (eg "weight" or "diabet"). Four different searches are available:
- MR exposure: searches for any outcome causally affected by the search term
- MR outcome: searches for any exposure causally affecting the search term
- Genetic correlation: searches for any trait with evidence of genetic correlation to the search term
- Drug: will find any drug targeting a gene to which a trait-associated SNP is linked, where that trait has a causal effect on the search term
In this proof-of-principle the p-value thresholds and other parameters are hard-coded, but in the released version these will be modifiable by the user.
