Over the weekend the database that houses sequences at WormBase became unavailable. Any features that require sequence (such as the location or sequence widgets) started to fail. Apologies for the inconvenience. We’ve already put a few changes in place to prevent a repeat of this event.
Enrichment, ontology browser and graph display tools are all working again. Thank-you for your patience.
A disk failure on one of our servers has brought the gene set enrichment analysis tool (TEA), the Ontology Browser (WoBr) and the graph display tool on the gene page down. We are working to restore these tools as soon as possible and apologize for any inconvenience caused. We will let the community know as soon as these are restored.
WormBase will be unavailable for approximately one hour on Thursday, November 28, 2019 starting at 12:00 PM ET (UTC -4). We apologize in advance for the disruption and plan to have service restored as quickly as possible.
Status: 12:08 PM ET, upgrade complete.
Today we are announcing the “sunset” period for WormMart at WormBase. WormMart will be formally retired from WormBase at the end of 2015.
For many years, WormMart was the primary data mining facility at WormBase. Later, we replaced it with WormMine based on the Intermine platform. In that time, we have maintained the two in parallel, although WormMart updates were frozen at the WS220 release of WormBase.
With the new release of WormMine for WS250, WormMine is now in a position to replace much of the existing functionality of WormMart but with a raft of more powerful and useful features. Over coming releases starting with WS251 (due for release at the end of 2015), we will be rapidly expanding the content of WormMine, starting with orthology, RNAi, and sequence features such as binding sites.
