The new Echinobase

The new Echinobase has: 
>34,000 S. purpuratus gene pages, A. planci gene pages
>18,500 publications,
a JBrowse genome browser,
reagents and protocols,
a wiki,
job postings and
people pages.
Links between these resources allow you to flow between them with a  single click.
The Echinoderm Anatomical Ontology (ECAO) is a tool for annotating papers, gene expression and genomics, and describes both anatomy and developmental stages and is coming soon.
Echinobase provides a critical data sharing infrastructure for other NIH-funded projects, and is a focal point for the echinoderm community.
In addition to our primary goal of supporting echinoderm researchers, Echinobase enhances the availability and visibility of echinoderm data to the broader biomedical research community.

We would like to thank following individuals/labs for contributing Echinoderm images.
