The yeast-id.org original site has been completely redesigned using modern web technologies. The results is a new, dinamic and more usable site.
No agreements needed.
In the previous yeast-id.org site, signing an agreement was needed to access the yeasts data and be able to search it. The new yeast-id.org has been opened to everybody.
No agreements are needed to access to the data, just agree the terms and conditions clicking in the agreements link and you can list or search in the yeast-id.org database.
Linked to MycoBank.
Each species name is linked to its file in MycoBank so you can access all the species data and references from yeast-id.org.
“MycoBank is owned by the International Mycological Association and is an on-line database aimed as a service to the mycological and scientific community by documenting mycological nomenclatural novelties (new names and combinations) and associated data, for example descriptions and illustrations. Pairwise sequence alignments and polyphasic identifications of fungi and yeasts against curated references databases are proposed.” (From www.mycobank.org)
A new database engine
This change allows linking the yeast-id.org database with those of the CECT.
