NECTAR 1.00 RSS logo

I am pleased to announce NECTAR 1.00 which is built on Ensembl 74 and UniProt 2013_11. More disease genes (67 from HUMSAVAR, 2 from HGMD-PUBLIC and 527 from ClinVar) and function annotations available. Ensembl 74 includes dbSNP Build 138, therefore lots of ClinVar annotations are included in this release. Enjoy! -Sung
