Release Notes



Jump into Spring 2021!

Wendy Zimmerman, PhD |
BioDati Studio 0.9.0 Today we are celebrating our Spring release of 2021. We were very busy this winter updating Biodati Studio, both the front and back ends. We have completely replaced the authentication, and updated our login process to make it easier and more secure. Current users may need to reset their passwords — just use the Forgot Password link. Under the hood, the API has been updated, leading to faster processing and better performance.

New for July!

Wendy Zimmerman, PhD |
We just released our new Project Feature. “Projects” is designed to help you organize your work by providing a space for you and your team to group together knowledge (Nanopublications or nanopubs) and networks. Projects are accessible from the BioDati Studio dashboard. For a walkthrough of the new Projects feature, see look here. July is not just about Projects! The Knowledge Search page has a new look and feel. It’s more streamlined with a bunch of added usability features; we are sure you will notice them as soon as you start looking for some Knowledge.

May Release-It’s all about Networks!

Wendy Zimmerman, PhD |
We have added a new Network Status feature. Like our Nanopub Status feature, Network Status is designed to aid the curation workflow. Networks can now be set in Draft, Review, Fix, Approved, Rejected, or Finalized Status. Like Finalized Nanopubs, Finalized Networks are immutable. Finalized Networks can be copied and downloaded, but nodes and edges cannot be added or removed. By default, all new networks are created in Draft status. Status can be updated using the status dropdown menu in Edit Network Information.

The Spring update is Here!

Wendy Zimmerman, PhD |
It’s Spring, the daffodils are blooming, and we made a few changes to the curation interface to speed the workflow for those using our Bulk Loading feature. We reformulated the form to enhance nanopub validation so it’s less intrusive to the workflow. Assertion validation now occurs in the background, so you can continue to edit while waiting for your long list, (of hundreds ****or thousands of assertions in your nanopub), to complete validation.

Bulk Curation 2020

Wendy Zimmerman, PhD |
So, you have hundreds of assertions to add to your nanopub. Don’t get overwhelmed! Use our new bulk curation tool. Corral those assertions into three columns on a spreadsheet, like excel or google sheets, copy them to your clipboard and click Bulk Import. It is that easy. This was a popular user request. We always try to develop Studio in a tight feedback loop with our users. For help with this feature see our Bulk Assertion Loading help.

New Release March 2020

William Hayes, PhD |
Overview Our groundhog is still hiding. I hope you like our stand-in! Let’s start off with some GREAT news! We’ve loaded the Selventa BEL Knowledgebase with 148,000+ literature curated nanopubs resulting in over 2 million edges with orthologization to human, mouse, and rat. (If you need it orthologized to different species, please let us know.) There are now also over 35M computed edges now to help support these edges! This provides a significant knowledge base to start building networks and running analytics.

Github Actions — my initial realizations

William Hayes, PhD |
GitHub Actions is a build tool integrated into GitHub that allows you to run build pipelines defined in files added to your GitHub code repository. You can start these workflows based on any branch changes, pull requests, code pushes, pushed git tags, API requests, or scheduled jobs. At Biodati, we firmly believe both code and application quality is highly dependent on automation and automated testing. A key objective for our platform is to attain a consistent level of frictionless deployment.

Product Update 10/6/19

Ally Rose |
This release is all about small enhancements that you can see and major ones that you cannot see that make it easier for us to deliver faster and with better quality. Added User: Added ‘Fix’ status to the set of Nanopub statuses. You can also leave internal comments on nanopubs for curators during the review process. Check out the details here! AND/OR search facet features added. So you can filter on multiple facets at the same time.
