September 2010 N-Browse is now integrated with the
database web service [link modMine:
mine and download data from the modENCODE project (www.modencode.org) ].
Cytoscape SIF files can also now be imported/exported.
April 2010 TAIR (The Arabidopsis Information
Resource [link TAIR] has
announced their use of NBrowse as their interface for molecular
interaction data and will have a link to NBrowse on their website.
There is now a test beta release of N-Browse available (unstable release). The link is: NBrowse 2 Test Version
The production beta release is: NBrowse 2 Production Version
August 2009 A new version of NBrowse is ready for
beta testing. NBrowse2 is a major reimplementation of NBrowse. New
* Runs either as an applet (inside a web browser) or as a stand-alone application (launched with Java WebStart)
* A new graphical engine with fast rendering of large graphs and 3D capability, JNet (based on the open source molecular structure viewer JMol
* A new windowing system, InfoNode
* Can connect to multiple databases; choose from a list of databases from within the GUI
* Cooperates with the Gaggle, an open-source system to mediate data transfer between independent applications
