The search results may also be downloaded by clicking the Export button above the table and choosing the desired format from the pull-down menu to the right of the File name field (blue box in the figure below). Available formats are tab-separated values, comma-separated values, XML, and JSON. When the results contain genomic features, they may also be downloaded in FASTA, GFF3, or BED format. Other options may be specified in the submenu to the left of the download box (orange box in the figure below). By default, all rows and all columns are downloaded, but individual columns may be included or excluded by clicking on the toggles next to the column headers in the All Columns submenu. The number of rows and row offset are set in the All Rows submenu. Download the results as a compressed file by choosing GZIP or ZIP format in the Compression submenu (default is No Compression). Column headers are not added by default but may be included under the Column Headers submenu. Finally, the Preview submenu displays the first three rows of the file to be downloaded so that the desired format and options may be finalized before beginning the download.
