Don’t want to remember another username/password combo for BioGPS? Now you can sign-in to BioGPS using your Google or Yahoo account (or one of several other supported accounts you may use everyday). This feature is brought to you by OpenID, a free online identity system, which allows you to login to any supported web site using a single set of login credentials, e.g., your username/password for your Gmail account.

The first time you login to BioGPS using OpenID, you have two options to quickly get started with BioGPS. If you already have an account with us, you can associate your existing account with your OpenID authentication. Otherwise, you can provide a little basic information to create a new BioGPS account. Once you’ve set this up, logging in to BioGPS is just a mouse click or two away! You’ll be surprised at how easy and simple it is.
On a technical note, BioGPS supports both versions 1.xx and the latest 2.xx OpenID protocols, as well as newer inames protocol.
You can read more about OpenID at our site, at the official OpenID site, or at Wikipedia.
