yeast(.sf.)net

Since release 4.0 of our yeast metabolic reconstruction, a number of questions have been put my way:

  • is there a forum for community discussion?
  • who is using YeastNet, and how?
  • where can I get the very latest unreleased version of the network?

to which my answers have typically been somewhat negative: “no”, “who knows?” and “nowhere”.

Our static webpage is clearly somewhat old-fashioned for today’s user-base, so we’re trialling an alternative approach at sourceforge – yeast.sf.net. There’s an inbuilt forum (and the possibility of a blog, if we’re that way inclined). But, most importantly, any updates to the reconstruction are immediately available; this should reduce the time for incorporation of user-submitted updates from about-a-year to about-a-day.

Happy yeasting!
