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
The Amazon molly (Poecilia formosa) is now available on Ensembl Pre! This particular species is especially interesting to scientific research due to its origins, its method of reproduction and the manner in which it interacts with other closely related fish. The Continue reading Sexual parasitism in the Amazon molly
Our initial annotation of the new human assembly is live in the Ensembl Pre site and we are now fully annotating GRCh38 as part of our customary Ensembl release cycle. The complete annotation will be available in Ensembl release 76, due in the Continue reading Ensembl Release Cycle and GRCh38
Do you want to annotate genes and transcripts of your favourite genome? Will you be in Cambridge (UK) for the Genome Informatics 2014 meeting? Have you worked with the Unix command line? If your answer is yes to any of Continue reading Ensembl gene annotation workshop
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!
