Resource: STRING v8.1

After months of hard work from the entire STRING team – thanks everyone –  I am pleased to be able to say that STRING v8.1 has now been put into production. Here is a screen shot of the start page:

This is a minor release of STRING, which means that the imported databases of microarray expression data, protein interactions, genetic interactions, and pathways as well as text-mining evidence have all been updated. We have also fixed a bug that affected the minority of bacteria that have multiple chromosomes.

Another notable feature of STRING v8.1 is the new interactive network viewer that is implemented in Adobe Flash:
