Launching PneumoBrowse and PneumoExpress!
Today we proudly launch 2 new databases that will tremendously aid researchers working on Streptococcus pneumoniae.
The first database is PneumoBrowse, which allows browsing through the now extremely well annotated D39V genome. The second database is PneumoExpress, which provides detailed gene expression profiles of all genes under 22 infection-relevant conditions.
We anticipate that these resources will aid in functional analysis of the pneumococcal genome, future genome annotation projects, and the acceleration of identifying new vaccine candidates and targets for novel antibiotics.
