The New Ensembl Regulatory Annotation

The New Ensembl Regulatory Annotation

GWAS after GWAS return statistically significant hits that are hard to interpret because they fall outside of coding regions, and this begs for more functional annotation of regulatory regions. We at Ensembl have been providing such an annotation for a Continue reading The New Ensembl Regulatory Annotation

WiggleTools: a pocket calculator for very large datasets

We are pleased to announce a new bioinformatics application, WiggleTools, described in a recent Application Note in Bioinformatics. It allows you to quickly and conveniently compute statistics across many (up to the hundreds) of genome-wide datasets. WiggleTools is first a data summary tool. It collapses Continue reading WiggleTools: a pocket calculator for very large datasets

ENCODE integrative analysis data available in Ensembl

We are pleased to announce that we are now providing access to the ENCODE integrative analysis data from within Ensembl. These analyses bring together a multitude of experiments targeted at determining functional elements in the human genome sequence. This data Continue reading ENCODE integrative analysis data available in Ensembl

Transcription Factor Binding Sites in Ensembl

Ensembl provides annotations indicating regions in the genome that are experimentally verified to be bound by transcription factors (from ChIP-Seq experiments). Within these regions, we now also provide precise transcription factor binding sites. To generate these binding sites, we make use Continue reading Transcription Factor Binding Sites in Ensembl
