Ensembl Genomes Release 12

The Ensembl Genomes Project is pleased to announce release 12 of Ensembl Genomes.

This release contains 5 new genomes, bringing the total genomes supported to 335.   Main highlights are:

* Software migration to Ensembl 65

* Operon data from RegulonDB for E. coli K12 in Ensembl Bacteria

* A new species (Ashbya gossypii) and manually curated annotation from a new resource for yeast!  This is the first release of Ensembl Fungi containing data from PomBase, a new genome-centric resource (developed by Ensembl Genomes, the University of Cambridge, and University College London) for the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe.

* The addition of Cyanidioschyzon merolae to Ensembl Plants and significant updates to Physcomitrella patens and the soybean Glycine max
* Three new genomes in Ensembl Metazoa: Atta cephalotes, a leaf-cutting ant, Tribolium castaneum, the red flour beetle, and Bombyx mori, a domesticated silkmoth

Note, EG 12 will be available on ftp next week.

Happy holidays!
