WISER 4.0 Is Now Available!

WISER 4.0 is now available!  You may download it from the WISER web site <http://wiser.nlm.nih.gov/> , or access the on-line version, WebWISER <http://webwiser.nlm.nih.gov/> .

This new version introduces a biological substance list to augment the existing chemical and radioisotope lists. Highlights of this version include:

* Substance data for the six "Category A" biological agents (see the list here <http://wiser.nlm.nih.gov/substances.html> )
* WMD Response Guidebook pages are included into the substance data where appropriate
* A new tool for general browsing of the guide pages of the WMD Response Guidebook (except for Palm OS)
* A new Radiation Unit Conversion tool
* WISER can now automatically check for updates
* Incorporation of the latest NLM Hazardous Substance Data Bank updates
* And many more miscellaneous application and data enhancements

Coming soon - ERG 2008: Look for another release in April that upgrades the ERG content based on the soon-to-be-released ERG 2008 publication.
