As of the most recent data update on April 24th to build version 20180422, the MyGene.info db grew to contain 22,132,511 documents. As a valuable service that has seen over 20 million requests in the last 30 days, MyGene.info was fortunate enough to receive renewed support
Citizen Science Day was April 14th this year, and Mark2Cure partnered with the San Diego Public Library to host a local Citizen Science Expo. Of course, many of our wonderful contributors are not in San Diego and could not attend the event. For those of you who wish to get
San Diego Citizen Science Day Expo
Citizen Science Day is on April 14th, this year and many citizen science organizations (including yours truly) are hosting citizen science events. Here in San Diego, we’ve teamed up with the San Diego Public Library and the Wet Lab group to put on the
Hopefully, you’ll all forgive us for the delay in announcing the results of #CitSciMedBlitz. Our partners at EyesOnAlz, Cochrane crowd, and ourselves were a little tired after the blitz and we gave ourselves a short break. Since the blitz, the EyesOnAlz team has generated the #CitSciMedBlitz digital badge for participants
The results for Mark2Cure’s arm of the CitSciBlitz are now available! Kien Pong Yap took the top spot in this challenge (see ranking at bottom of post).
What’s exciting is that several of these names were also in the top 10 for the StallCatchers challenge so it’ll be a tough

MyGene.info API supports both “/gene” and “/query” endpoints. On its /query endpoint, an optional species parameter allows users to pass one or multiple species (as common species names or taxonomy ids) to filter down the query results.
Previously, the default species were set to “human,mouse,rat”. This meant
In BioGPS, there are a number of Intermine-based model organism plugins (and to a lesser extent model organism data sets) which allow users to explore gene expression in organisms typically studied in biomedical research. Model organisms such as mice, rats, flies,...
