Thank you for your interest in the UM-BBD.

- A pathway for furfural has been added, and the pathway
  for 4-nitrophenol has been updated and renamed the nitrophenol
  family pathway (an/aerobic).  The furfural pathway was created
  by a student in the 2007 Biocatalysis and Biodegradation class.
  The nitrophenol family pathway (an/aerobic) includes aerobic
  pathways for 2- and 4-nitrophenol and resorcinol, and an 
  anaerobic pathway for 3-nitrophenol degradation.[upathway-id:'fur_map'][upathway-id:'nphe_map']

- In the Pathway Prediction System (PPS), rules for hydrolysis of 
  organic sulfates (bt0143), and anaerobic addition of fumarate 
  to methyl side chains on aromatic substrates (bt0270), have been
  updated.  Predictions for these types of compounds are improved.

- UM-BBD microorganism links have been moved to the WFCC-MIRCEN 
  World Data Centre for Microorganisms on the list of organisms, 
  and text pathway map pages, such as the 2-aminobenzoate pathway.
- On the Links page, a link was removed for the National Agricultural 
  Library Bioremediation Bibliography.
