Earlier this week, the BioCoRE team released a major upgrade of the BioCoRE
server and we would like to invite you to log in and try it out if you
haven't already done so.
You can log in from the standard BioCoRE page at:
Note: If you haven't ever logged in, you will want to set up Java WebStart
for the Control Panel. Instructions on this are located at:
Among some of the changes:
* The interface has received a major overhaul. You'll instantly notice

* Polls: BioCoRE now supports polls and quizzes. Project administrators (or

members. Polls are set up via the web pages, and, at the appointed

* BioCoRE web pages are now themed via a preference in the utilities
section. There are currently several themes available, and users are
invited to submit new themes. Creation instructions are available.
