Release VB-2018-08

We are pleased to announce the August 2018 release of VectorBase (VB-2018-08):
  • New PopBio Map Pathogen View - shows the results of detection assays for various parasites and viruses
  • Many vector abundance datasets added: North America, Southern Africa, South East Asia
  • Abundance view has new stacked bar chart look (comments welcome) and some bugs relating to date display in the charts have been fixed.
  • A page to display select metrics and statistics is available here.

Release VB-2018-06

We are pleased to announce the June 2018 release of VectorBase (VB-2018-06):

Release VB-2017-06

We are pleased to announce the June 2017 release of VectorBase (VB-2017-06):
  • Differential RNA-seq expression data added from four publications, including a study comparing Anopheles merus and An. coluzzii transcriptional responses to salinity. There is now differential expression data available for ten species.
  • Ten new population biology datasets are available, including larval habitat monitoring for Culex, Anopheles and Aedes in Chennai, India

Gene set updates for 12 species

In this release there were updates to the gene sets for 12 species based on community annotation, and a minor gene set update for Anopheles gambiae.

New population biology datasets available (in PopBio)

Ten new population biology datasets are available:
  • Susceptibility profile and metabolic mechanisms involved in Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus resistant to DDT and deltamethrin in the Central African Republic (VBP0000178: details, map, 24 collections, 26 samples, 69 phenotypes, 5 genotypes)

New differential expression data available (in the Expression Browser)

Differential RNA-seq expression data added from four publications. There is now differential expression data available for ten species.
  • Response to salinity stress gradients in An. merus (Uyhelji et al., 2016) Anopheles merus RNA-seq experiment
  • Response to salinity stress gradients in An. coluzzii (Uyhelji et al., 2016) Anopheles coluzzii RNA-seq experiment
  • New population biology datasets added

    Fourteen new population biology datasets added, including sample metadata from the MalariaGen 1000 Anopheles gambiae genomes project, insecticide resistance studies and several large new blood meal species identification studies.

    New ortholog metrics

    New ortholog metrics have been added to help with the identification of high confidence orthologs. See this faq that discusses the new metrics such as the Gene Order Conservation (GOC) score.
