You may have heard us squeaking about our new mouse regulatory build in our Ensembl 93 release blog. If you’re interested in finding out what exactly a ‘regulatory build’ is, and how to view and download this data in Ensembl, then this is the blog for you!
The path to sequencing the wheat genome has been no easy ride, due to its large and highly repetitive genome. This new assembly from the IWGSC bridges many gaps from the initial genome sequencing effort. Read on to find out more about this exciting new genome assembly!
We’ve been tending the Ensembl Plants garden with great care, have cultivated several new species and updated a number of genome assemblies, including a new chromosome-level wheat genome from IWGSC. The protist team have also been busy and are proud to announce an updated assembly for Leishmania major.
Read on to find out more about these exciting new updates and more in this new release of Ensembl Genomes!
Are you feline excited for our new pawsome release?!
Ensembl 93 has been released, bringing with it two new big cat genomes for tiger and leopard, and an update to the domestic cat assembly. If cats aren’t your thing, we also have a huge new dbSNP import for human and a brand new regulatory build and GENCODE update for mouse.
We also have a new hagfish genome, important changes to our VEP REST endpoints, and many more exciting developments so read on to find out more!
We’re looking for a manager to head software development and web applications in Ensembl. We’re looking for MScs or PhDs Computational, Physical or Biological Sciences, with experience developing web applications. Closes 31st July.
This guest blog is a joint contribution by Laura Harris (GWAS Catalog) and Astrid Gall (Ensembl Outreach). You can contact our colleagues of the GWAS Catalog at gwas-info[at]ebi.ac.uk.
This year marks a special anniversary for the GWAS Catalog, as we have reached ten years since our launch in 2008. The GWAS Catalog is a widely used publicly available resource of all published human genome wide association studies (GWAS) and association results. Each GWAS study contains a wealth of information which is effectively inaccessible to researchers and clinicians without them spending a lot of time undertaking regular systematic reviews of the literature. This is where we can help you!
We’re looking for a bioinformatician to work on automating large-scale annotation of genes. We’re looking for MScs or PhDs in Computer Science, Bioinformatics or Genetics with experience working in eukaryotic genome annotation and object-oriented programming. Closes 12th August.
We’re looking for a bioinformatician to work on integrating variation data into our variation database and developing tools to display and work with it. We’re looking for degrees in genetics, biological or computational sciences with experience in production, genomics, Perl and Unix/Linux. Closes 5th August.
Functional genomics data from DANIO-CODE has been released to the public. This international effort, similar to ENCODE in human and mouse, seeks to characterise the functional elements in the zebrafish (Danio rerio) genome. Announced on Saturday at the International Zebrafish Conference, the DANIO-CODE dataset exists as a track hub, which can be viewed in Ensembl.
