New zebrafish developmental RNA-seq data in Ensembl

New zebrafish developmental RNA-seq data in Ensembl

For our latest release (e87) we’ve produced annotations from some new embryonic zebrafish RNA-seq data using the Ensembl genebuild RNA-seq pipeline. The collection of new data we’re providing consists of gene sets and alignments for 18 separate embryonic developmental stages, from the single Continue reading New zebrafish developmental RNA-seq data in Ensembl

New Ensembl Pre! sites

New Ensembl Pre! sites

The Ensembl Pre! site has been updated for four species: zebrafish (Danio rerio), rat (Rattus norvegicus), sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus) and fugu (Takifugu rubripes). Sperm whale is a new species to Ensembl. Our main site already displays earlier assemblies for fugu, zebrafish Continue reading New Ensembl Pre! sites

A GeneBuilder’s Perspective on the New Human Genome Assembly

A GeneBuilder’s Perspective on the New Human Genome Assembly

In-depth knowledge of the human genome is fundamental in an array of scientific fields, such as forensics, research, anthropology and medicine. Since the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 thousands of human genomes have been sequenced, sequencing technology Continue reading A GeneBuilder’s Perspective on the New Human Genome Assembly

New Pre! sites for blind cave fish, armadillo, prairie vole and white rhino

New Pre! sites for blind cave fish, armadillo, prairie vole and white rhino

New Pre! sites have been released for four species: the Mexican blind cave fish (Astyanax mexicanus), southern white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum simum), prairie vole (Microtus ochrogaster) and armadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus). The prairie vole assembly, MicOch1.0 (GCA_000317375.1), was made available by The Broad Institute in Continue reading New Pre! sites for blind cave fish, armadillo, prairie vole and white rhino
