deprecated ArachnoServer: Spider toxin database


General Information
This record was deprecated on June 24, 2021 for the following reason(s): The database is no longer available. Message on the homepage : "Unfortunately, given the age of the database and the fact that it was no longer compliant with today’s safety standards of web hosting by The University of Queensland (as exposed by recent hacker attacks), it was decided to take ArachnoServer offline, until a more permanent solution can be found to fix these issues (which might require rebuilding the entire database from scratch). As soon as we have decided how to proceed we will make an announcement in the IST newsletter. We are sorry for this inconvenience, but at least the existing toxin records should still be available via UniProt."

ArachnoServer is a manually curated database containing information on the sequence, three-dimensional structure, and biological activity of protein toxins derived from spider venom.
