We have just released the latest update of Ensembl Genomes.
This release contains the chromosome survey sequence for bread wheat cv Chinese Spring, generated by the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium. More than 100,000 protein-coding genes predicted by MIPS are now available for the first time in Ensembl Plants. We also provide in this release functional annotation, genome alignments, and inferred evolutionary histories for bread wheat.
The other highlights of release 21 are:
675 new genomes added (9,764 genomes now represented in total)
Pairwise alignments for Alveolates, Stramenopiles, Amoebozoa and Kinetoplastida
- Gene models for T. aestivum chromosome survey sequences, as described above
- Additional wheat RNA-Seq data.
- DNA-DNA alignments between bread wheat, rice, and Brachypodium distachyon.
MSU-7 gene models for the rice genome are now available, allowing visual comparison between this and the IRGSP set. Cross-references between the two gene sets are provided by rap-db, so searching and querying using either identifier space is possible.
- Peptide comparative genomics and BioMart
Schizosaccharomyces pombe annotations from PomBase
Peptide comparative genomics and BioMart
- Updated gene-trees to include T. aestivum gene models.
Updated GO terms for O. sativa and projected to other species.
Updated repeat analysis (TREP) for wheat genomes
