WormBase has been updated to the WS279 release of the database. In this release, we’ve refined the feedback mechanism and improved error handling behind the scenes. You can read more about the curation statistics of the WS279 release in the release notes.
A new report from WormBoard to the C. elegans community is now available. Following up on WormBoard’s July 2020 message, the August 31, 2020 report addresses the recent community climate survey, details plans for a C. elegans community Mentor Match program, lists opportunities for undergraduate research, and more. You can read the full report on the WormBase Wiki.
WormBase is happy to announce that the microPublication Biology journal is now fully listed in PubMed!
To make articles easier to cite and discover, every microPublication now receives a PubMed ID, a PubMed Central ID, and a DOI. If you have published with us in the past, consider updating your citations. Indexing is retroactive for all past articles.
You can see microPublications in PubMed by browsing the full index at
PubMed Central. Or look for microPublications during normal searches at PubMed or PubMed Central.
We look forward to receiving more submissions!
