PHI spotlight

PHI-base 5.0 is out! Our new gene centric version of PHI-base has its first release.

This version allows the display of diverse phenotypes and many additional data curated with our community curation interface, called PHI-Canto.

PHI-base 4 will remain online until end of 2025. Please use this version to download complete datasets.

The PHI-Canto community interspecies curation tool and framework description is available here: Cuzick et al, 2023, doi 10.7554/ eLife.84658.
A short overview is provided in an associated eLife digest.
Version: 4.17 release - Last revision: 01/05/2024

PHI-base is funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC, UK) and is being developed and maintained by scientists at Rothamsted Research.
