Ensembl Genomes release 29 is out!

What is new?

  • Pairwise alignments for more than 50 plant genomes including potato and tomato, cacao and grape, and several Oryza sp
  • Newly available genomes from INSDC into our ever expanding Protists and Fungi divisions
  • Cross-references of genes in Fungi and Protists to the Pathogen – Host Interaction Database (PHI-base)
  • Additional 6,806 bacterial genomes imported from ENA
  • Protein domain information from InterProScan (version 5.14-53.0)

Genomic alignments

New pairwise alignments have been extended to additional plant genomes and can be viewed in our browser website. The alignment text can be downloaded in different file formats.

Marking your favourite region, gene, exon, or variant

You can now mark a selected region when browsing the Ensembl Genomes websites. Drag and select your favourite gene and use the pop-up window to mark it. You can also click on the gene itself to mark the location of it.
