Downloads and Upgrades: GOBLET and KEGGScape 0.7.0


Researchers from The Genome Analysis Center along with their collaborators at other institutions have established the Global Organization for Bioinformatics Learning, Education and Training (GOBLET) training portal, a resource designed to support the diverse training needs of life scientist global communities.

GOBLET builds on an earlier prototype platform for sharing such resources that was created by the Bioinformatics Training Network. It offers access to a free collection of training materials and courses from the fields of bioinformatics, biocuration, Biocomputing, and computational biology, including a catalogue of trainers and course organizer contacts for specific expertise and training-event announcements. It also provides promotional opportunities for training events, an environment for sharing materials, and more. Additional details are available here.

KEGGScape 0.7.0, the latest version of a Cytoscape app for KEGG databases is available here.

According to the developers, the app supports all types of KGML files including global metabolic pathways, signaling pathways, and human diseases; has improved visual styles; offers network collection support; and more.
