The PhenoTips development team is happy to announce the availability of
the PhenoTips 1.3 Milestone 6 release. The highlights of the release are:

Suggested gene panels

PhenoTips now suggests which genes should be investigated, based on the
phenotypes describing the patient. This uses the phenotype-to-gene
annotations provided by the HPO team, and similar to the OMIM
suggestions, offers an interactive interface allowing to select which
phenotypes to ignore when looking for matching genes.

Additionally, suggested gene panels can be accessed via a RESTful API
that is documented in our developer guide [1].

Spanish translation of the Human Phenotype Ontology

The Human Phenotype Ontology is actively being translated into multiple
languages! With an almost complete translation into Spanish of all the
term names, PhenoTips can now also search and display symptoms in Spanish.

The Spanish language can be enabled from the PhenoTips administration:

- log in with an administrative account
- open the administration by clicking the Administration link in the
upper left corner
- open the Configuration -> Localization section
- either switch the default language to "es", to use only Spanish, or
switch "Multilingual" to "Yes", and make sure "es" appears in the list
of "Supported languages"
- don't forget to Save the configuration

If you wish to see PhenoTips and the HPO translated in another language,
please contribute to PhenoTips translations [2] and HPO translations [3]
on CrowdIn.
