Corrupted release - Rollback to Sep2014 release

Dear OMA users,

We are very sorry to inform you that the latest release of the OMA browser ("Mar 2015"), which has been accessible since 5 June 2015, is unfortunately corrupted. Specifically, in species that were updated in that release, many homologous pairs were erroneously left out in the inference step. We are therefore retracting the "Mar 2015" release and are using the previous release from Sep 2014 again.

We are now in the process of preparing a new release but this process will take several weeks.

If you have any question whether your analysis might be affected, feel free to contact us contact@omabrowser.org.

We are very sorry for any inconveniences this might have caused.

Kind regards,
the OMA team

Coming up: new release with 1613 genomes

Dear OMA users,

we have finished the computation of a new data set with 1613 genomes.

The new data set will be available in the OMA Browser within the next days. This can cause a short interruption of the web server. Sorry for any inconveniences. The data of the current release will afterwards be available in the OMA Browser Archive.

Unscheduled Maintenance

Dear OMA Browser users,

due to some unscheduled maintenance efforts, the OMA Browser had to be shut down. We expect to finish the work by 10am CET.
