More than 8,000 curated studies, a whole new look and thousands more users. If you’ve been wondering where we were, there’s your answer. We’ve had a lot going on, and now we’re back to share it all on this blog. So welcome back to news from NextBio!
Over the next few weeks, we hope to update this space with all the exciting happenings at NextBio. High on that list is the upcoming update of our public site, which will be made freely available to academic, government and non-profit users. Here’s a preview of what it looks like:
The intuitive user interface has more to it than just better aesthetics and navigational ease. Improved features and options let you identify new perspectives on your favorite gene, protein, or phenotype using thousands of public studies NextBio has curated. There are cool new visualization tools, more apps, and easier ways to upload your own data. Existing features are more accessible and interactive, and there are several new data types for more specific investigations. You can now research copy number changes, SNPs, phenotype-related methylation differences, and much more. It’s a long list and we are excited for you to try it yourself in just a few weeks more!
As we work up to launching our new site for academic users, we hope to get back in touch with many of you through this blog. We’re looking forward to sharing conversations about bioinformatics and genomics, tips on making the most of NextBio, data mining and much more. Along the way, we’ll keep you posted on product updates and the theory and practice of applying NextBio’s curated genomic data to your research questions.
Stay tuned for conversations with scientists, updates on new research, and of course – the new NextBio features, data, and interface!SHARE
