New website coming soon!

We've been hard at work updating the website and we hope to roll out a new version running Oncotator v1.3 under the hood soon. Users will be able to enjoy all the benefits of Oncotator v1.x without having to install the tool locally. In addition, we've re-written both the back and front-ends of the web application, which will allow the team to better maintain the site and add additional features. For a limited time after the rollout, users will be able the access the old site (using Oncotator v 0.4) with a different URL.

Stay tuned for more information.
