To improve security and privacy, we are moving our web pages and services from HTTP to HTTPS.
To give users of web services time to transition to HTTPS, we will support separate HTTP and HTTPS services until the end of 2017.
From January 2018 most HTTP traffic will be automatically redirected to HTTPS. [more...] View this page in https
How ExPASy customary users can continue using their favorite proteomics resources on the new ExPASy portal
Today, ExPASy is evolving, continuing to respond to the higher expectations of the scientific community
in becoming an even more exhaustive life science platform.
To make the evolution as much smooth and flawless for ExPASy customary users, a thorough work has been performed
in reorganizing, extending, and consolidating the original data resources and tools. Our aim, besides extending the
server's potentiality, was to make sure all traditional users could easily benefit from the changes and the evolution
of their favorite platform without being affected or disturbed in their day-to-day work.
Here is how customary users will be able to smoothly and intuitively navigate between the common proteomics tools
and resources, how they should update their bookmarks, and how to reference their favorite proteins, profiles or
Homogeneity of resource URLs (web addresses)
Example how to obtain a URL for an ExPASy resource
We have changed the URLs for several resources a way that the resource name is explicitly visible in the URL. For instance,
*.expasy.org<resourcename> or <resourcename>.expasy.org
- Select Resources in query
- Type name of resource
- Click on resource name to obtain URL (or mouse-over)
For information, the former URL was http://www.expasy.org/tools/dna.html
Refering to a specific entry
- hamap.expasy.org/proteomes/ECOLI.html (former: www.expasy.org/sprot/hamap/ECOLI.html)
- world-2dpage.expasy.org/swiss-2dpage/docs/* (former: www.expasy.org/ch2d/*)
The access to the ExPASy FTP site will remain unchanged on ftp://ftp.expasy.org.
How ExPASy customary users will find their way
Beside getting the same look and feel across the different resources, users will be automatically
redirected from their accustomed locations to the new ones in a transparent manner. This transition
period will ensure that all ExPASy users become familiar with the new portal structure.
