REDfly updates.
  • Over the next month or two we will be updating REDfly to include over 1600 new reporter construct/CRM records. So that the new data are available to our users as quickly as possible, we are releasing them on a daily basis as "reporter construct" records. However, calculation of reporter construct attributes such as whether or not they are considered "CRMs", whether regions have been "minimized," and syntenty information has not yet been conducted. Please take this into account when using the database and as always, note your dates of access.

  • Completely redesigned user interface.
  • Enhanced search capabilities.
  • Inclusion of
    • Gene location information
    • Synteny information for CRMs

    • Inferred CRMs
  • For a full description of new data and features see our recent NAR paper

REDfly enhancements.
  • The REDfly interface is undergoing upgrades! Over the next several weeks we will be rolling out a number of interface enhancements to the "search" and "results" pages, including autocomplete search fields and other helpful new features. Please bear with us during our upgrade process and let us know about any bugs or problems.
  • REDfly is moving to a continuous update cycle. Newly curated CRMs and TFBSs will be added to the database on an ongoing basis. The most recently added records can be retrieved using the "view updates" button on the Search page or by using our "search by date - last updated after" feature. Please note that new or updated records do NOT cause the REDfly version to update. As always when accessing data from an online database, please make note of the date on which you access your data and include this in any reports of analysis performed using REDflyrecords.
