WMD version 3 is now officially released at wmd3.weigelworld.org.
Over 100 plants are available for amiRNA design using released transcripts or EST databases.
Other new features include amiRNAs against non annotated transcripts, "acceptable off-targets"
and a blast against the transcripts in the plant databases to identify redundant entries and
thus determine acceptable off-targets. In addition we improved the amiRNA design algorithm,
in particular hybridization energy calculation and ranking of results. Therefor please do not
use WMD version 1 anymore to design new amiRNAs for A.thaliana. (We will still maintain
the old versions in case you have to check previous results.)
