CiteAb- New antibody website

Dear Xenopus listers,

We are setting up a publication based antibody search website that I
hope will be of interest to the Xenopus community.

CiteAb is now live and has about 400,000 antibodies from 27 companies.
It allows you to search and then filter by host, application and species

There are also stable links for Xenopus laevis

and Xenopus tropicalis.

It would be great if you could give it a try and let me know what you

We are also sharing information with Xenbase so if you add data on any
of your publications we will pass the information to Xenbase.

Best wishes,

Try our new publication based antibody search tool. Search 400,000
antibodies and filter via host, application and reactivity.

Animal shipments

Hello All,
Hope you all enjoyed the Xenopus conference as much as I did. It was good to interact with all of you and get to meet some new people. I look forward to future interactions with everyone and I encourage everyone to make use of this newsletter.

Just thought I would pass along this link to a story in Nature regarding shipment of animals, as there is a direct impact on Xenopus shipments. Please be aware of this and make sure that if you have a chance to voice your opinion at your institution on this matter to do so. We do not want to have problems shipping frogs in the future.

Xenbase User Survey

Xenbase User Survey.

Please follow the link below and take a quick survey about Xenbase: the database that provides genomic,
molecular, cellular and developmental biology content to biomedical researchers
working with the frog, Xenopus.

It will only take a few minutes. Your input will help us prioritize new developments & features and to better understand you, the Xenopus research community, your needs and interests.

The survey closes Sept 30th 2012.

Thank you,
