Dear RIKEN SciNetS users,

On 26 February 2015, the Bioinformatics Exploratory Committee that examines technologies for bioinformatics in RIKEN decided to close the RIKEN SciNetS service after two months of database transition period from April 2015. All databases on SciNetS has been carefully determined by the Database working group and the databases needed to be periodically published are confirmed that they were transferred and published on RIKEN’s new database infrastructure called “RIKEN Meta Database”. Thus, the RIKEN SciNetS service will be closed on 1st June 2015. Please use the RIKEN Meta Database(http://metadb.riken.jp) that is developed to promote further contribution in data distribution among researchers so that RIKEN’s research results are widely used.
