Mor Development Blog
Over the summer, a massive number of improvements were made to the mor code, including tree presentation on the website. Shortly before transitioning from our test system to our actual, unexplained spontaneous faults plagued the (formerly-working) code and everything ground to a halt. I'm pleased to report that this is now mostly fixed, and in the meantime the Parsimony and Jackknife trees have been updated using a recent dataset and recent code. A "#" to the right of the taxa means that entry is present in the backbone.
In the near future, mor will resume auto-updating and we can roll out additional features and improvements.
There are some new pages on the mor site you may find useful. From the ITS Sequence Clusters page, a full listing of accepted ITS Sequences can be generated. From the Accepted/Rejected LSU rRNA sequence pages, clicking on a species name now displays the LSU rRNA sequences for that species only.
You should now be able to view your morBLAST results through the user menu. There are still a couple of bugs in the system, but we're aware of most of them and working on ironing them out.
Hi everyone, I'm Anders and I'll be working on mor over the summer. Thanks again to Chuck and Tom for helping in this transition as much as they have, as well as for their offers of continued support if I run into any questions. They've provided an enormous amount of documentation on the functioning of mor and the mor site, which is greatly appreciated.
I've spent the last few days familiarizing myself with mor and the website's code and databases. My first set of tasks has been going around the site and doing some clean-up of broken links and functionality. Once the minor site bugs are resolved and the site itself is stable, I'll be going "under the hood" to implement some changes in mor at the request of Dr. Hibbett. I'll keep the DevBlog updated with the work I do.
Never fear, we're still hard at work developing mor. We've got a list of bugs that popped up during the switch over to the new website, but don't worry, we will stamp them out. We've been updating the documentation so Anders will be able to continue developing the project over the summer.
