Release VB-2014-10

We are pleased to announce the October release of VectorBase (VB-2014-10):

  • New gene sets for four Glossina species (Glossina austeni, Glossina brevipalpis, Glossina fuscipes and Glossina pallidipes) and Anopheles sinensis China strain.
  • Updated gene set for Aedes aegypti (AaegL3.3)
  • The final IRBase studies have been transfered to the Population Biology database.
  • A new variation database for Anopheles stephensi SDA-500 strain.
  • Please visit VectorBase Forum for information about how to rear sandflies. Videos and other materials have been prepared by members of Dr. Jesus G. Valenzuela lab in NIH. If you would like to ask questions to the authors of the material please Register in VectorBase website, this will give you the possibility to post questions in the forum.
  • A new "project/experiment" filter has been introduced in search. You'll see it after you "drill down" into either the expression or population biology domains in the "Filter Results" box.
  • Additional advanced search enhancements to facilitate the transition of IRBase into the VB population biology resource. We expect to update and add tutorials for this evolving functionality over the next few releases.
