Dear users of SubtiWiki,
We have scheduled the server update on Sunday, 28th May, 2017. The website might be unreachable for a few hours. We appologize for the inconvinience and thank you for your understanding.
We will also use the time to upgrade SubtiWiki to a new version. It is current avaible online. Have a preview at Here
In the coming Bacilli meeting in Berlin, we will be hosting a SubtiWiki workshop, where we will reveal all nnew features as well as the strategies used behind the scene. We sincerely welcomme you to join.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
Your SubtiWiki Team
