The PathoYeastract Database is Launched!

The PathoYeastract Database is Launched! | iBB | Scoop.it
"The PathoYeastract database, a repository of data on transcription regulation occurring in pathogenic yeasts responsible for the development of candidiasis in humans, has just been launched. The knowledge gathered therein by researchers from BSRG-iBB and INESC-ID was extracted from hundreds of publications. The database provides researchers in the field with computational tools that are crucial for the design of improved strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of life-threatening yeast infections.

YEASTRACT+ Included in the National Roadmap of Research Infrastructures

YEASTRACT+ Included in the National Roadmap of Research Infrastructures | iBB | Scoop.it

YEASTRACT+, an e-infrastructure for research on gene and genomic regulation in yeasts proposed by the Biological Sciences Research Group (BSRG) of iBB and the Knowledge Discovery and Bioinformatics (KDBIO) Group of INESC-ID, was included in the National Roadmap of Research Infrastructures as a node of the Portuguese Biological Data Network (BioData.pt). BioData.pt is a digital infrastructure in the context of the European consortium ELIXIR that aims at exploiting biological data through its compilation and annotation, together with the creation of formal contexts (ontologies) and informatics tools (databases, algorithms).

YEASTRACT+ envisages the continuous updating and extension of the pre-existing digital structure YEASTRACT (http://www.yeastract.com/), a tool for the analysis and prediction of transcription regulatory associations at the gene and genomic levels in the model eukaryote and microbial cell factory Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Yeastract+ will extend the scope of action of YEASTRACT to different S. cerevisiae strains and other yeasts species of clinical and industrial interest (e.g. Candida glabrata, C. albicans, Zygosaccharomyces baillii).

Experimental Access to Springer Protocols

Experimental Access to Springer Protocols | iBB | Scoop.it

"Springer's Protocols is the world's most comprehensive collection of protocols in biomedical and life sciences."

Miguel Prazeres's insight:

All units of IST have free access to the Springer Protocols database (> 36000 protocols) between the 6th October and the 6th December via http://www.springerprotocols.com/

New Release of the YEASTRACT Database

New Release of the YEASTRACT Database | iBB | Scoop.it

Early this year, the newest version of the YEASTRACT database was released in a paper in Nucleic Acids Research, resulting from the effort of a team of researchers from the BSRG/IBB and the KDBIO/INESC-ID. The YEASTRACT information system has been an important tool for thousands of users from the Yeast and Systems Biology communities for the past decade. Its new version offers unprecedented tools for the analysis and prediction of the regulatory control in budding yeast, at gene and genomic levels. Click on title to learn more.
