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
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
We’re just one month away from the release 76 of Ensembl, which will include the long-awaited GRCh38 human assembly, and I’d like to sum up the work the comparative genomics team (aka Compara) team has been up to over the Continue reading GRCh38 and the Ensembl comparative genomics resources
Ensembl 76 is scheduled for release by end of July 2014. Highlights for the coming release include: New human assembly – GRCh38 Complete Ensembl annotation of the new genome GENCODE release 20 will be updated including manual annotation from Havana Continue reading What’s coming in Ensembl release 76
We are pleased to announce the public release of manual annotation on the new human GRCh38 assembly on the Vega website.This release follows on from the publication of a preliminary gene set on Pre! Ensembl and represents one of the Continue reading Adding value to the human assembly: manual annotation on human GRCh38 released
The Genome Reference Consortium (GRC) is a collaboration between the EMBL-EBI, NCBI, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, and Genome Institute at Washington University. They are responsible for maintaining the human, mouse and zebrafish reference genome assemblies that you can see in Ensembl, Continue reading GRC Assembly Workshop at Genome Informatics
