This image is of the database selection/query form in the Workbench. Any search will be performed with the databases that the user selects with the checkboxes on the left; one may search as many databases simultaneously as are desired. One caveat - the more databases that are selected for a query, the longer the query will take to return results.
Example (as seen above): myoglobin
For constructing complex/limiting searches, Boolean operators may be used within the text line. Simply place the words "AND", "NOT", or "OR" (in all caps) between the words of your query, and the search engine will take that into account during the full text search of the chosen database(s). If you would like to set the order of searching, place parentheses around the words to be sought and any associated operators.
Example: (myoglobin AND human) OR orangutan
