Downloads and Upgrades: RefSeq 65, I2E 4.2, and more


RefSeq 65 is now available from the National Center for Biotechnology Information via FTP.

This release incorporates genomic, transcript, and protein data available as of May 12, 2014. It includes 51,770,174 records, 38,633,935 proteins, 7,051,549 RNAs, and sequences from 36,335 different organisms.

Linguamatics has released I2E 4.2, the latest version of its text mining platform. The release includes tools for integrated charting and graphing of data and new capabilities for integrating semantically enriched data into enterprise search engines.

Dassault Systèmes has launched a new tool called Biovia that combines capabilities from its own portfolio with assets it's acquired when it merged with Accelrys earlier this year. The solution provides tools for biological, chemical and material modeling, simulation and production domains.
