We thank Ms. Mijung Park, a student in the major of Art and Design from University of Michigan, for her designing the PHIDIAS logo and banner.
We thank the authors of publicly available data from different sources (e.g., RefSeq, CDD, Pfam, PubMed, PathInfo, MINet, HazARD, and KEGG). We are grateful to be able to integrate and extend many open-source software programs (e.g., GBrowse and NCBI BLAST) in PHIDIAS.
The BBP development team includes Zuoshuang Xiang (webmaster), Wenjie Zheng (previous webmaster), and Dr. Yongqun "Oliver" He.
