PHI spotlight






The May 2018 release of PHI-base is now online. The next release is scheduled for November 2018. We are pleased to also now have a dedicated landing page for the database available. We hope that the landing page overtime will become more interactive and will provide additional content useful for the analysis and understanding of pathogen-host interactions. Please send any comments and ideas to contact@phibase.org
