Version 2.1, January 2016

  • New features
    • RP levels that were previously removed have been reinstated by popular demand.
    • Revisions to the help documentation.
    • PDB search results now link to both PDBe and RCSB.

Version 2.0, August 2015

  • New features
    • Move from Janelia to EBI.
    • Now supporting Ensembl Genomes Plants as a new target database.
    • RP levels removed.

Version 1.4, May 2013

  • New features
    • We have enabled the searching of multiple hmm databases via hmmscan. This allows the results of Gene3D, Superfamily, Pfam and TIGRGAMs to be compared in a single page.
    • The HMM length and the coverage of the HMM is now indicated in the tool tip associated with the domain graphic, located in the ‘sequence features’ section. The HMM length has also been added to the hmmscan results table.
    • The website is now using HMMER version 3.1, with the software due to be released shortly. We have added the option of downloading HMMs in both 3.0 and 3.1 formats.
    • Alignment downloads have been improved, particularly for large alignments, which were often so big that the server would timeout.
    • We have also work on several speed optimisations in the website to improve interactivity.
  • Bug Fixes
    • Based on user feedback, we have updated the validation of E-value cut-offs to allow scientific notation with the exponent as E or e.
    • Fixed issue with long taxon names which are now being truncated to ensure that tree, in taxonomy results visualisation, remains aligned.
