Within the Validation subsection of the search page, one can search for four types of genetic experiment: loss-of-function mutant, overexpression, knockout unrecovered, and RNAi/antisense assay. This query set includes a search for each type, although there is nothing under overexpression or knockout unrecovered. According to the curation, 16 genes have been studied in a "loss-of-function mutant" way and 248 have been studied by RNAi/antisense assay. This curation was completed by Takashi Suzuki some time ago (probably by summer of 2007) and thus is unlikely to include the latest literature findings.
