The European Bioinformatics Institute has released a beta version of its programming-language-agnostic REST API for data from Ensembl 68.
The initial release, available here, provides access to sequences, the Variant Effect Predictor, homologies, gene trees, and assembly and coordinate mapping.
Reactome 42 is available here.
Topics with new or revised information include immune system, disease, cell cycle, metabolism, membrane trafficking, and gene expression. New pathway illustrations include signal transduction, signaling by hippo, signaling by SCF-KIT, and mitochondrial protein import.
The latest version of Bio-Formats includes bug fixes, support for Zeiss AxioVision TIFF datasets and Leica SCN datasets, and API support for large image "pyramids."
OMERO 4.4.4 is primarily a bug-fix release.
