It is now available via the Node Package Manager which means that anyone using Node-based JavaScript applications can easily include it. It is also available as a single file download for standard JavaScript applications. More details can be found on GitHub. OPS.js is used in the Open PHACTS Explorer and in the BioJS Open PHACTS compound widget.


Biological patent annotations are now displayed on the SureChEMBL interface. In collaboration with Open PHACTS and SciBite, the EBI have implemented a mechanism to allow users to highlight biological entities (such as genes and diseases) within SureChEMBL patent documents. For more information see the SureChEMBL blog.
