HistoBase back up

Fri, 6 April 2010 11:00:00 PDT

HistoBase was unavailable from 7/23/2010 to 8/6/2010 due to a hardware failure on our webserver. As of 8/6/2010, the databases have been rebuilt on an interim webserver. We took advantage of the down time to upgrade the underlying operating system (from RHEL 4 to Debian GNU/Linux 5) and Gbrowse (from 1.65 to 2.03). Note that, due to the upgrade, javascript and cookies must be enabled in your browser in order to use most of the Gbrowse features.

All of the data and interfaces previously existing on HistoBase should now be available. We apologize for any inconvenience that the down time may have caused. Please contact Mark.Voorhies@ucsf.edu if you notice any bugs or missing data.

Updated gene links for Fg, An, Ci, and HcWU24 (Nam1)

Mon, 29 March 2010 11:00:00 PDT

Updated broken gene links for Fusarium graminearum and Aspergillus nidulans. Fusarium graminearum now links to the BROAD Fusarium multihome database. Aspergillus nidulans now links to AspGD.

Coccidioides immitis and Histoplasma capsulatum WU24 (Nam1) now link to the BROAD's comparative Dimorph Fungal Database rather than the strain-specific databases. Additionally, Michael Koehrsen has added links to HistoBase from the BROAD's WU24 gene pages.

Gbrowse download for BLAT

Sat, 20 March 2010 20:30:02 PDT

The results page for BLAT searches now has an option to download all hits in Gbrowse annotation format. Previously, the Gbrowse annotation had to be copied from the alignment details page for each hit.

Expression data

Sat, 20 March 2010 20:30:01 PDT

Expression profiles from two microarray experiments are now available on the G217B gene details pages:

Batch download tools

Sat, 20 March 2010 20:30:00 PDT

HistoBase now has two batch download tools:

Both tools are queried with a list of UIDs from the G217B or G186AR oligo arrays (UIDs are listed under "Oligos" in the gene details pages; e.g., G217Borfs1.21j16 for ABC1). Querying by gene name is not currently supported.

Interface updates

Tue, 18 March 2008 17:53:47 PDT

Finished several small updates to the site layout and navigation.

Launch of public website

Fri, 11 May 2007 12:54:25 PDT

HistoBase, a functional annotation database for Histoplasma capsulatum, is now publicly accessible at http://histo.ucsf.edu/.

Bug fixes, data updates, and new features will be posted to this site.
