The second update of the GRCh37 archive site has now been released. Some of the data imports and updates for this release include: dbSNP144 human data including data from the Exome Aggregation Consortium (ExAC) Public HGMD data (version 2015.2) Phenotype Continue reading Second update of the Ensembl GRCh37 site
Boom! Due to a somewhat catastrophic hardware failure during our production cycle for Ensembl release 79, we have only been able to release human dbSNP 142 incorporating 1000 Genomes phase 3 data on our GRCh37-based services (Web: grch37.ensembl.org, REST API: grch37.rest.ensembl.org, Continue reading dbSNP 142 and 1000 Genomes Phase 3
Annotation of the recent human assembly, GRCh38, was released in e76 in August 2014. Since then we have been maintaining a dedicated site to the GRCh37 assembly. The reason for updating annotations on the previous human assembly is to support those users Continue reading First update of the Ensembl GRCh37 site
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
Are you a rat person, i.e. do you work on rat? Are you joining the 9th Rat Genomics and Models conference in December? Could you spare another day after the meeting before heading back home? If so, this post is for Continue reading Extra extra extra: Ensembl workshop at the ‘Rat Genomics and models’ conference!
What’s new in e!76? Updated human assembly to GRCh38 (GENCODE 20) Updated mouse gene set (GENCODE M3) New BLAST/BLAT New Regulation displays Improved sequence export New species: Amazon molly and Olive baboon New human assembly – GRCh38 We’re excited to release Continue reading Ensembl 76 has been released!
With the release of Ensembl 76 fast approaching, the variation team would like to provide more information on how we moved our variation data to the new human assembly, GRCh38. There are different methods available for re-annotating variants on a Continue reading Variation annotation for GRCh38
With the release 76 looming large in our calendars and the final deadlines out of the way for GRCh38 data production, it’s a good time to look back and take stock of what we’ve been doing in the Ensembl Regulation office. We have Continue reading The Ensembl Regulation Analysis Pipeline
We’re now only a couple of weeks away from releasing our full annotation of the new human genome assembly (GRCh38). Before we make it publicly available we’d like to update you on our progress and to share a few key pieces Continue reading The new human annotation is almost here!
As mentioned in another post, due to the presence of patches in both GRCh37 and GRCh38, the assembly mapping has proven challenging. Related to this, another novelty arises when assigning stable ids to genes. Every time a gene set is Continue reading Maintaining stable ids between GRCh37 and GRCh38
