We are pleased to announce the latest release of Ensembl Genomes (EG!39). Highlights include new genomes (Stalk-eyed fly and Waterflea) and a polyploid view for Wheat. Read on to find out more about new data and features:
We think conferences are great opportunities to use talks and posters to tell people about all the cool stuff we’re developing, provide training with workshops and learn more about what’s going on in our fields of interest. Ensembl team members attend many conferences a year and 2018 is no exception, we’re planning to attend nineteen (so far)!
Both Ensembl release 92 and Ensembl Genomes release 39 are scheduled for April 2018.
Included are new genomes and genebuilds (Goat, Zebrafish, Marmoset, Stalk-eyed fly and Waterflea) and a command line version of our new Linkage Disequilibrium tool.
This month we’re meeting Carla from our comparative genomics team (which we call compara).
We’re looking for a bioinformatics developer to join our genebuild team, creating and running pipelines to annotate genes onto genomes. We’re looking for PhDs or MScs in Computer Science, Bioinformatics, Genetics or related fields, with experience in genome annotation using pipelines and compute clusters and knowledge of object-oriented programming and Unix. Closes 25th February.
