Partial service interruption, Saturday 3 Dec 2011

To accomodate a storage upgrade, select elements of the WormBase website will be unavailable on Saturday, 3 December 2011 from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM (ET; UTC -5). During this time, the following services will be unavailable: the Genome Browser; BLAST, BLAT, ePCR searches; the WormBase wiki; the WormBase blog; and the Worm Community Forum. We apologize for any difficulties this interruption may cause.

retiring of wormbase.sanger.ac.uk

due to the new WormBase web interface (preview it on Beta WormBase) scaling dynamically with demand and location of requests, dedicated permanent mirror sites will become obsolete as soon as the new infrastructure is deployed.

As part of this, wormbase.sanger.ac.uk will be retired on the 25th November 2011.
