What’s new in dkNET: User Notifications
It’s been a while since we
provided you with updates on new features in dkNET. WE apologize for the absence-we’ve been busy
though. Please check back here for
regular updates. First, we’d like to
introduce our new team member, Dr. Ko-Wei Lin, who has just joined us as Project Manager.
You may have noticed that
our web page has changed. We have
consolidated dkNET into a single portal, rather than maintain a separate web
page. You can find information about
dkNET under the ABOUT menu. If you’d
like to learn more about dkNET and how you can use it, check out our
publication in PLoSOne.
New features: We are pleased to announce a new User
Notification and E-mail Update feature. Now users can sign up for email
notifications when new data is added to dkNET that matches a search criteria.

already have an account and a saved search, click MY ACCOUNT, and select Saved

see the number of updated saved search labeled next to Saved Search.
