Genetic Association Database, Lasergene 7.1, UniProt 9.0

An updated version of the Genetic Association Database, an archive of published gene-based human disease genetic association studies, is available here. The content has increased from 8,000 records to more than 28,000 records. The new version also includes a batch search function, which allows users to paste in a list of human gene symbols, Unigene numbers, or Entrez Gene numbers to query the database.

DNAStar has released Lasergene 7.1, which includes SeqMan Pro, a new assembly engine that is compatible with next-generation sequencing technologies. Lasergene 7.1 runs natively on Windows, Mac PowerPC chips, and Mac Intel chips and also enables batch import of Vector NTI files while retaining key formatting features from those files. 

UniProt 9.0 is available here. The release includes 3,554,507 entries, including 241,242 in the UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot section and 3,313,265 in the UniProtKB/TrEMBL section.
