sql "LIKE" equivalent in django query

What is the equivalent of this SQL statement in django?

    SELECT * FROM table_name WHERE string LIKE pattern;

How do I implement this in django? I tried

    result = table.objects.filter( pattern in string )

But that did not work. How do i implement this?

Use contains or icontains:

    result = table.objects.filter(string__contains='pattern')
