Antibodypedia, an open-access database for commercially available antibodies, has recently re-launched with a new website. Semantico re-architectured and redesigned the site, following the brief from Nature Publishing Group and the Antibodypedia company.
The new site is a collaborative project between Nature Publishing Group and Antibodypedia and is to be a trusted, high quality online resource for the consultation and deposition of antibody validation data for the scientific community. The site will seamlessly integrate and provide links between branded nature.com and Antibodypedia pages.
Semantico were responsible for the redesign of the co-branded site. Features of the updated site include:
- Enhanced user experience
- Re-brand, with a new look and feel to the site
- Easy transition from nature.com pages to Antibodypedia search result pages and entries
- Integration of advertisement on Antibodypedia pages
- User-friendly submission of user-generated validation data
- User-friendly submission system for antibody vendors
“A site like Antibodypedia has to be intuitively easy to use as scientists have little patience for anything that doesn’t work efficiently” said Christopher Surridge, Chief Editor and Associate Publisher of Nature Protocols. “The new site is a considerable improvement on what had gone before and manages to be visually arresting and supremely functional.”
Richard Padley, Managing Director, Semantico said: “It’s good to see the new Antibodypedia site launch. Working with Nature Publishing Group and Antibodypedia has been a great experience, and it’s professionally fulfilling to see such a positive outcome to a high profile project. We look forward to working with both parties in the future.”
