Archaeopteryx adds capability to display images

Archaeopteryx (version 0.960 or higher) has now the capability to display images of organisms.

To do this, it takes advantage of the “uri” sub-element of the phyloXML “taxonomy” element, for example:

<taxonomy>
  <id provider="uniprot">27288</id>
  <scientific_name>Saccharomyces castellii</scientific_name>
  <uri type="image">http://www.diark.org/img/species_pict/Naumovia_castellii</uri>
</taxonomy>

For an example, go here
