Update to Bioinformatics Links Directory

M.D. Brazas and four co-authors, Keeping pace with the data: 2008 update on the Bioinformatics Links Directory, Nucleic Acids Research, July 1, 2008.  Because the article isn't yet online at the journal site, I'm linking to the abstract at PubMed.

Abstract:   The Bioinformatics Links Directory, is an online resource for public access to all of the life science research web servers published in this and previous issues of Nucleic Acids Research, together with other useful tools, databases and resources for bioinformatics and molecular biology research. Dependent on community input and development, the Bioinformatics Links Directory exemplifies an open access research tool and resource. The 2008 update includes the 94 web servers featured in the July 2008 Web Server issue of Nucleic Acids Research, bringing the total number of servers listed in the Bioinformatics Links Directory to over 1200 links. A complete list of all links listed in this Nucleic Acids Research 2008 Web Server issue can be accessed online [here]. The 2008 update of the Bioinformatics Links Directory, which includes the Web Server list and summaries, is also available online at the Nucleic Acids Research website.

Update.  The article is now online and OA at the journal site.  (Thanks to Francis Ouellette.)
