I’m going to be blogging a bit more about the recent Ensembl 61 release and the Ensembl Genomes 8 release – lots and lots of goodies in both these releases – web site tweaks (some of the them totally critical Continue reading New Ensembl Genomes release expands the metazoa
Now that Ensembl Genomes has moved onto the 60 code base, all the goodies in Ensembl‘s user data site are available across all 304 species in Ensembl genomes – from tiny bacteria to crazy big plants. One of these is Continue reading Beds, Wigs, BAMs and Variants for Flies, Rust, Aphids and 301 other species
The Ensembl 60 release sees two changes in our data upload capabilities First off Ensembl can now “attach” a BAM file. BAM is the compressed form SAM – Sequence AlignMent files – which has become the dominant way to package Continue reading Beds, Wigs and BAMs
Release 57 saw the release of a 5-way EPO alignment across the telost fish – Zebrafish, Stickleback, Medaka, Tetraodon and Fugu. Just recently I’ve spent some time browsing through them. They are very interesting, with the ancestral duplication in Fish Continue reading Musing about Fish Alignments.
The gene tree images now have little intron “ticks” on them showing how the intron position is placed relative to the protein sequence. An example is shown above. Each tick is a little black line on each side of the Continue reading Gene Trees now have intron ticks.
For about 3 weeks now researchers in the US have had their default Ensembl go to our US west mirror (uswest.ensembl.org) automatically – if you just go to www.ensembl.org you brower gets automatically redirected. The US joined Japan and Canada Continue reading Calling all Americans (and Australians/NZ/Pacific Rim…)
When we changed our look and feel almost a year ago, we “left behind” our two main graphical genome-wide comparative genomics displays (our textual comparative genomics displays remains, as did some of the gene centric ones). These were some of Continue reading Genome-wide comparative displays
This year we’ve invested in our own mirror – maintained by us – on the west coast of the US. This was mainly because assessing the web return time for our users showed a consistent additional 3 to 4 seconds Continue reading West Coast Mirror
Release 55 has lots of goodies – not least the new, coordinated, GRCh37 assembly (more on that later), but one addition is the Martability of Ensembl Regulatory Features. Regulatory features are on by default on Human and Mouse, and each Continue reading Ensembl Regulatory Features – now Martable
Steve posted the news that we’re delaying our new release for at least two more weeks. The message is pasted in here: Hi all In our Intentions Summary mail for release 51 we stated that the release was scheduled for Continue reading Websites and Guinness. Worth the wait.
