Ensembl 88 is now live. Read on to find out what’s new, and join us for a tour during our release webinar, at 16.00 BST on Tuesday, April 4.
For our latest release (e87) we’ve produced annotations from some new embryonic zebrafish RNA-seq data using the Ensembl genebuild RNA-seq pipeline. The collection of new data we’re providing consists of gene sets and alignments for 18 separate embryonic developmental stages, from the single Continue reading New zebrafish developmental RNA-seq data in Ensembl
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
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
Why did my gene change? As a member of the Ensembl Outreach team, who is actively involved with training and user support, I often have to answer the question, “Why did the annotation of my favourite gene change?” There are Continue reading LRG records in Ensembl: stable annotation of human genes
All gene annotations in Ensembl are supported by biological sequence alignments. These sequences used as supporting evidence are downloaded from public databases, for example UniProt and ENA, at the start of the gene annotation process. Public sequence databases are updated Continue reading Flagging the removed evidences of our databases
There is a new Pre! site for version 2.1.3 of the chimpanzee genome assembly (known as Pan_troglodytes-2.1.3). This assembly will remain as a Pre! site while we complete the genebuild for the most recent assembly: Pan_troglodytes-2.1.4. These two assemblies are Continue reading New Pre! site for Chimpanzee
