* Data from Inparanoid was updated to version 8
* Orthology data for all core nemtatodes and model organisms was imported from WormBase Parasite release 1
* OMA and TreeFam data was removed in preparation for an update (TreeFam accessions will remain as database crossreferences)
Expression and Picture update
* A large set of expression graphs for other nematodes produced by Yanai’s has been added
The RNASeq data will become richer in WS247.
There will also be “control” mean and median FPKM values derived from the data which does not have a specific experimental condition applied.
New/updated reference genomes
This release we see a rebuild of C. elegans, B. malayi and O. volvulus. Various data classes and curational activites have been undertaken on these species since the release of WS246
