GenDR Build 4: Release Notes

Release date: June 24, 2017
Number of genes inferred from genetic manipulations: 214
Number of genes from expression changes: 173

This third build represents a significant update of the genes inferred from genetic manipulation experiments with dozens of new genes added to the database. No genes were deleted, but some gene symbols were updated.

The list of genes whose expression is consistently altered due to DR, derived from a meta-analysis of microarray DR studies in mammals, did not change and is not expected to change in the foreseeable future.

Please remember these notes refer to the latest stable build of GenDR. The current version may differ slightly from the above due to improvements after the build's release.
