Database repairs Oct 9

The ionomicshub will be down for a few essential security patches on Friday, October 9th. These updates will start at 11:00am and be complete by 1:00pm (ET) (may be before).

Yeast database goes live

The Beta version of our yeast database is now live. This database holds over 50,000 samples worth of ionomic data on all viable yeast strains from both the full genome knockout and over expression collections. A description of how the data was collected has been published in Danku et al., J Anal. At. Spectrom. 2009, 24, 103-107. The database supports searches for specific genes, data display and download. We have also included features that allow the re-upload of downloaded data sets after user-defined manipulations have been performed. These new up-loaded user-defined data sets then become searchable by the community. We are currently working on a paper in which we describe the statistical analysis of the data and its biological implications. Please report bugs or suggestions to or
