Major Update for the Bioinformatics Links Directory
The Bioinformatics Links Directory is a listing of specialized servers and general purpose resources that aims to help scientists navigate the rapidly changing landscape of online research tools. A major update for the Bioinfomatics Links Directory has just been released at http://bioinformatics.ca/links_directory//links_directory.
In addition to the updated content, the 2007 update of the Bioinformatics Links Directory includes new features that embrace accessibility and open data exchange. For example, the Bioinformatics Links Directory has become a LinkOut provider for the NCBI. With this data exchange, it is now easier for researchers to jump directly from searches in PubMed to Web Server listings in the Bioinformatics Links Directory.
Since the last update, we have also implemented a new CSS based design to improve the look and feel of the Bioinformatics Links Directory . This new design makes it easier to browse the categories of the directory and is fully compliant with current web standards. RSS feeds are now available for any page that you can navigate to in the Bioinformatics Links Directory. The Bioinformatics Links Directory is an example of a community resource driven by researchers who invest considerable efforts ensuring that their research is freely accessible and in the public domain. Suggestions for additions, revisions or corrections to the Bioinformatics Links Directory are strongly encouraged and should be sent to links[at]bioinformatics[dot]ca
