2011-03-28 - New function: Sharing your search

Now it is possible to send the result of your search to colleagues and friends. To do that, click the ShareThis icon , which is available in each result tab. By clicking this icon, a small popup window will appear where you can select e.g. Email, Facebook, Twitter, or Google Buzz to send your search. Shared searches will be available on the server for three days.

2010-09-07 - New functions and changes

This is a major update of the web-interface and the myosin data. Two new search modules have been developed: one allowing searches for specific sequence names (e.g. as found in our publications) and one for gene related data. In addition, there are four new result views. One lists all publications related to the selected sequences. The sequence stats result view provides statistical data related to the selected sequences. The complex inventory view provides a picture view of some predefined complexes (e.g. dynactin) with those subunits colored for which sequence data is available. The phylogenetic tree viewer is a gateway to Sequoia, a phylogentic tree viewer, visualising only the selected sequences from the tree of all sequences. The sequences view has been extended by now providing gene data. The gene views are connected to Webcipio (http://www.webscipio.org) thus allowing a complete representation of all gene related information.

Many new sequences are available, some hundred new myosin sequences as well as all motor protein sequences from arthropods. Also, we have started to provide gene data for several proteins. We hope, to finish that analysis soon so that the gene structure for every sequence will be available.

Furthermore, an additional way of searching diArk's data was developed, the so-called Fast_Search. Here, you can search CyMoBase using the most common search options. This search would be most suitable for beginners.

Many new features have been included in an updated version of the web-interface. The main changes pertain to the search interface that has been unitized. There are several new search options as well as new results/analysis modules. In particular, the main changes are the following:

Release v 1.5.0 of the myosins, containing 2269 myosin sequences from 328 species. Based on the phylogenetic analysis of their head domain sequences, the myosins have been grouped into 35 classes leaving 149 homologs unclassified ("orphans"). For more details see

CyMoBase goes online! We are proud to have finished all functionality-related programming, so we can launch the web-interface to the CyMoBase. Although we still discuss some design issues and many entries are missing in the Help/FAQ and Links pages, we feel it's time now to go public. The first public releases of the CyMoBase data are releases v 0.5.0 of the myosins, and v 0.1.0 of the kinesins and the calcium binding proteins.
