New Year - New Major Release

Looks like 2009 will bring a lot of changes for both STRING and STITCH - and to lead the way, STRING has now been upgraded to version 8.0 !

This has been a major upgrade, and it has been some time in the making. We have almost doubled the number of organisms (again), and re-imported all the various pathways, protein-complexes and text-collections. We've also worked a lot behind the scenes, solidifying the API, further automating our data import and updating the way we display orthologous groups, to name just a few examples. All this has been possible only, really, because of our new sponsor - the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB). Thanks guys !

More info about this new release is also available from here.
