This is the third of our monthly posts introducing a member of the Ensembl team and what they do in Ensembl. This time it’s Matthew Laird, who works in the Core team. Continue reading
Ensembl transcripts have two identifiers, the versioned ENST, which is stable through time and can be tracked from release to release, and a separate identifier that incorporates a gene symbol. The latter have changed in e!89; read on for more details.Continue reading
We are pleased to announce that Ensembl Genomes 35 has now been released.
New and updated genomic sequences are available in all EG sub-portals, while updated comparative peptide analyses have been performed for Fungi, Metazoa, Plants, and Protists:
- Ensembl Bacteria now incorporates 2460 new genomes, as well as revised assemblies and annotation for 188 and 234 genomes, respectively;
- Ensembl Fungi now incorporates more than 100 new genomes, including the Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici PST-130 v1.0 assembly from the Joint Genome Institute, and provides updates to existing genomes and annotation. In particular, a new, manually-annotated genebuild, curated by the community using the WebApollo tool, has been added for Botrytis cinerea B05.10;
- Ensembl Metazoa adds three new genomes, including that of Hessian fly. In addition, orthologue metrics have been calculated for all metazoan species and have been used to compute a set of “high-confidence” orthologues;
- Ensembl Plants includes a new genome assembly and genebuild for Sorghum bicolor, and an updated genebuild for maize. New variation data are available for bread wheat, as are new comparative peptide analyses for all species;
- Ensembl Protists contains 11 new genomes, along with revised genomic assemblies for more than 25 other species. Variation data have been newly included for Phaeodactylum tricornutum, and have been updated for Phytophthora infestans and Plasmodium falciparum; new comparative peptide analyses have also been performed.

Ensembl incorporated haplotype data from the 1000 Genomes Project into e!84, which was released in March 2016. These data allow you to view genomic sequence variants that associate together—haplotypes—and how they track through individuals and populations. Continue reading
