New Pre! sites for olive baboon, sheep and common shrew

New Pre! sites have been released for three species: common shrew (Sorex araneus), olive baboon (Papio anubis) and sheep (Ovis aries).

The common shrew assembly SorAra2.0 (GCA_000181275.2) was submitted by the Broad Institute. It consists of 12,845 unplaced scaffolds comprised of 201,798 contigs. A total of 16,210 gene models have been created from alignments of 16,209 human Ensembl translations and 1 shrew-specific protein. In addition, alignments of sequences from UniProt, UniGene and the ENA vertebrate RNA collection are provided. Click here to visit the common shrew Pre! site.

The olive baboon assembly Panu_2.0 (GCA_000264685.1) was submitted by the Baylor College of Medicine. It consists of 20 autosomal chromosomes (1-20) and the X chromosome. There are 72,500 scaffolds (63,229 of which are unplaced) comprised of 198,931 contigs. A total of 20,234 gene models were generated from alignments of known olive baboon proteins and human Ensembl translations. In addition, alignments of sequences from UniProt, UniGene, GenBank (baboon ESTs), RefSeq (baboon cDNAs) and the ENA vertebrate RNA collection are provided.

The sheep assembly Oar_v.31 (GCA_000298735.1) has 130,765 contigs, 5,697 toplevel sequences and 27 chromosomes including the X chromosome. It was submitted by the International Sheep Genomics Sequencing Consortium. Alignments were created using human and cow Ensembl translations and known sheep proteins from Uniprot and RefSeq. These alignments gave 45,972 gene models in total. In addition, alignments of sequences from UniProt, UniGene, GenBank (~935,000 sheep ESTs), RefSeq (~15,700 sheep cDNAs) and the ENA vertebrate RNA collection are provided.
