Pre! site for the new human assembly (GRCh38) is live!

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!

GRCh38 Assembly Mapping – Updating Coordinates in the New Human Genome

GRCh38 Assembly Mapping - Updating Coordinates in the New Human Genome

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
