IDs of matching sequence are returned to the search engine; (4.) the matching sequence IDs are used to query the local managing database for available gene data; (5.) a list of matching gene data and descriptive text is returned to the search engine; (6.) an html formatted page containing the retrieved gene data and descriptive text is returned to the user's browser.
