Website updates - New datasets and homepage

Published 17 October 2016

We have just published a major update to the FaceBase website - here’s an overview of what you will find.

New Data

We are pleased to offer the following new datasets from FaceBase2 projects:

New homepage and Resources Hub

We’ve been listening to feedback and iterating on a new “face” for FaceBase. We’ve streamlined the information - making it cleaner and more focused on our important offerings.

The Craniofacial Resources Hub shows all of the information available from FaceBase and our collaborators. We’ll be keeping this page updated with the latest offerings. Check it out here: Resources Hub

Updated Mouse Anatomy and Skull Fly-through

Yang Chai’s lab at USC has updated the Mouse Anatomy page with color-coded drawings representing cell lineages through age stages E10.5 through P0 of a C57BL/6 mouse embryo.

We have also posted a link to their 3D Mouse Skull Flythrough video that takes you on a journey through all parts of a mouse skull.

Updated authentication system

We are rolling out an update to our authentication system on Oct 19th - based on Globus Auth - that will allow new (and existing) users the ability to sign up for a FaceBase account using an existing trusted login (i.e., campus, NIH, Google).

Cleaning and curation of the backend

The Hub has been making many changes under-the-hood to curate the data.
