New zebrafish developmental RNA-seq data in Ensembl

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

Rebuilding the zebrafish gene set

The zebrafish (Danio rerio) is pretty much the ideal model for understanding vertebrate development as it combines some of the best attributes from several other model organisms. More importantly, there is extensive similarity between the zebrafish and human genomes. Thus, Continue reading Rebuilding the zebrafish gene set
