The latest database version (2014.3) was released on 5th November and includes many content updates and new website enhancements. The current release now covers 7220 distinct ligands interacting at 2708 protein targets (see full statistics on our About page). This post describes all the changes:
- Overview pages for target classes and superfamilies: while browsing the target family lists you can now click on the ‘Overview’ icon to access overviews, subfamily lists and further reading for target super families (Figure 1)
- Search term auto completion: As you type in search terms which match target or ligand names in the database these now come up as a list of suggestions (Figure 2). Clicking on a result links straight to the database page for that entity.
- Searches now work with Greek characters e.g. α,β.
- Removed option to choose whether to go to the concise or detailed view page in target search results. Results link directly to the detailed view if it exists, or to the concise view if it doesn’t.
- Data downloads: new peptide ligand CSV file with sequences and chemical modifications.
