The david knowledge base was last updated in 2016. When I submit a list of refseq protein accessions, 10-20% do not get mapped since they have been added since 2016. This is especially true with my livestock species, since they are being constantly updated by NCBI. Are you planning on updating the database to a 2020 version?

We realize that the update of the DAVID knowledgebase is a major concern for our users. We are currently working on an update including methods to help automate a majority of the process in order to update much more frequently.
On that note, we welcome any user suggestions for new annotations that you would like to see integrated into DAVID.

Thanks for the update Brad, I know it must be a very daunting task to update these databases because of the huge amount of entries and with the exponential growth of species having complete genomes sequenced.
