We’re excited to announce that the initial annotation of the new human assembly, GRCh38, is now live on the Ensembl Pre! site. A new human assembly is always an exciting (and scary) prospect for both Ensembl and the greater scientific Continue reading Pre! site for the new human assembly (GRCh38) is live!
As you may know, the new GRCh38 assembly for human was released in December 2013. This is a major update for Ensembl and will require months of hard work to provide high quality annotation for our users. Our goal is to Continue reading GRCh38 Assembly Mapping – Updating Coordinates in the New Human Genome
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
The Genome Reference Consortium (GRC) plans to release a new human assembly (GRCh38) later this year. What is the reason for an update? The current human genome in Ensembl, UCSC and NCBI (GRCh37) is indeed high quality. The GRC reports Continue reading New Human Assembly Coming
