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
New Pre! sites have been released for four species: the Mexican blind cave fish (Astyanax mexicanus), southern white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum simum), prairie vole (Microtus ochrogaster) and armadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus). The prairie vole assembly, MicOch1.0 (GCA_000317375.1), was made available by The Broad Institute in Continue reading New Pre! sites for blind cave fish, armadillo, prairie vole and white rhino
New Pre! sites have been released for three species: common shrew (Sorex araneus), olive baboon (Papio anubis) and sheep (Ovis aries). The common shrew assembly SorAra2.0 (GCA_000181275.2) was submitted by the Broad Institute. It consists of 12,845 unplaced scaffolds comprised Continue reading New Pre! sites for olive baboon, sheep and common shrew
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
Updated elephant and gorilla genomes are now available on the Ensembl Pre! site. They will be released in full with annotated gene sets in Ensembl 57 (due spring 2010). The new gorilla assembly (gorGor2) includes short-read and capillary sequences. The Continue reading New on Pre!
