UI Updates

We’ve been taking feedback from users and submission projects and are constantly working to improve the Data Browser experience. Below are some of the recent steps we’ve taken but there’ll be many more to come in the next couple of months!

  • Mouse age stages are sorted according to developmental stage (E8.5, …E10,… P0) rather than alphabetically.

  • No longer displaying the dataset thumbnails.

  • PubMed IDs are now displayed as either “PMID:xxxxx” or “Link to PubMed (PMID:xxxx)” depending on where they are displayed.

  • Vocabulary tags (phenotype, age stage, organism, experiment type, etc.) are now displayed towards the top of the page for a dataset rather than in a new section w/ heading for each.

  • Chromosome (when shown on a dataset page) is formatter per usual convention “chrN: start – end”

  • We’ve stopped automatically opening a new browser tab for every new page.
