Today we are meeting Irina, who joined the Variation team earlier this year. She talks about how she came to Ensembl, her interests, experience so far and more.

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!
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.
