1270 new PWMs were added giving a total of 2526 available PWMs.


All genomes were updated to their last version according to Ensembl 2015.


Predicted CRMs TSS Relative positions and PWM Score values histograms are now included with the results.


INSECT results are now integrated with Ensembl Regulation and GeneMANIA.


Nucleosome positioning prediction now included [Kaplan et al., Nature 2008].


INSECT 2.0 new release has increased its search speed and efficiency, allowing genome-wide predictions.
