We’re looking for a manager to lead EMBL-EBI’s contribution to WormBase, a genomics resource for C. elegans. We’re looking for PhDs in Molecular Biology or Bioinformatics, with experience in model organism genomics, using databases for modelling biological data and a programming language. Closes 26th February.
A brand new regulatory build for the human GRCh38 and GRCh37 assemblies was released in Ensembl 95 earlier this week. The new regulatory build incorporates data for 55 new and 38 updated epigenomes from the ENCODE project. So what are the differences from the previous regulatory build?
We’re looking for a bioinformatician to work on genomes of non-vertebrate metazoa. We’re looking for Masters in computing or related scientific discipline, with experience in bioinformatics and proficiency in Perl, Python, SQL and Unix. Closes 21st February.
We’ve just released Ensembl Genomes 42, with new and updated plant species, including soya and tomato, as well as three new species for Ensembl Metazoa.
The latest version of Ensembl, release 95, is out. This release brings a brand new human regulatory build for GRCh37 and GRCh38, incorporating new data from the ENCODE and Roadmap epigenomics project, plus an update to the mouse GENCODE gene set. We’ve also got a whole host of new vertebrate species, updated genome assemblies for some important agricultural species and the brand new protein structure viewer.
Most of the time when we talk about variant annotation, we talk about the effects of variants on genes, but did you know that the VEP can also tell you how variants affect the genomic features that regulate gene expression, such as promoter and enhancers?
We’re planning to release the next versions of Ensembl and Ensembl Genomes in December.
We’ve got some exciting new genomes, including polar bear, as well as updated genome assemblies for three important agricultural species. We’ve also got a new regulatory build for the human GRCh38 and GRCh37 assemblies and a brand new protein structure variation view.
If a variant hits a splice site, you want to know if splicing is going to occur as normal, or if you can expect a different protein isoform. We have a few cool tools with the VEP that will help you to assess that for your own variants.
In this blog we catch up with Ensembl’s 2018 Google Summer of Code (GSoC) students and hear about their now completed projects, and their reflections on the experience. You may have already seen our previous blog post which we published as they were just beginning their projects. Read on to find out how they went, what they learnt and what valuable advice they can pass on to aspiring GSoC students.
