release Release & Version Information

DAVID 6.8 Oct. 2016

-- The DAVID Knowledgebase completely rebuilt
-- Entrez Gene integrated as the central identifier to allow for more timely updates
while still incorporating Ensembl and Uniprot as integral data sources
-- New GO category (GO Direct) provides GO mappings directly annotated by the source database (no parent terms included)
-- New annotation categories
-- New list identifier systems added for list uploading and conversion
-- A few bugs fixed

DAVID 6.7 Jan. 2010

-- The DAVID Knowledgebase completely rebuilt, including the central DAVID id system
-- Ensembl Gene included as an integral data source
-- DAVID engine completely rebuilt to facilitate future updates and development
-- New GO category (GO FAT) filters out very broad GO terms based on a measured specificity of each term (not level-specificity)
-- New annotation categories
-- New list identifier systems added for list uploading and conversion
-- Automatic list naming based on uploaded file name
-- Ability to upload expression/other values (some display, but otherwise not used in the analysis at this point)
-- A few bugs fixed
-- and more
