Ensembl 99 (and Ensembl Genomes 46) are due out in December and we plan to include a bumper set of new and updated species. As with all releases, we cannot guarantee that anything listed here will make it into the final release.

Release announcements for Ensembl and Ensembl Genomes
We’re pleased to announce the release of Ensembl 98, and the corresponding Ensembl Genomes release 45. We have a new Post-GWAS Analysis tool and a drove of pig and fish genomes.
NCBI has announced big changes to how dbSNP manages human variation data, which will be reflected in Ensembl. These changes include a new allele normalisation approach and the removal of some older population genetics data.
Ensembl 98 (and Ensembl Genomes 45) are due out next month, so it’s time to pig-out on the tasty morsels we have to offer. As with all releases, we cannot guarantee that anything listed here will make it into the final release.
The archive website for Ensembl 76 will be retired with the release of Ensembl 98 in the Autumn. This is inline with our rolling retirement policy, where archives are retired after five years, unless they contain the last instance of an important dataset for a key species.
The database will still be available for direct queries and on our FTP site.
Ensembl 97 and Ensembl Genomes 44 have been released! In this release you’ll find many new species, including some hybrid livestock, as well as important changes to gene sets for human and mouse and a new update to the human Regulatory Build.
Read on to explore the full details.
Both Ensembl release 97 and Ensembl Genomes release 44 are scheduled for mid- to late-June.
Included are a number of new livestock, fish, metazoan, plant, and protist genomes and genebuilds, as well as updates to the mouse and human GENCODE annotation and the human regulatory build.
Read on to see further details of the new data you can look forward to.
These releases are huge in many respects, so it was difficult to decide which news to put first! Let’s start with some exciting news from our annotators.Continue reading
We will make changes to the directory layouts of both the Ensembl Genomes FTP server (ftp://ftp.ensemblgenomes.org/pub/) and the Ensembl GRCh37 FTP server (ftp://ftp.ensemblorg.ebi.ac.uk/pub/grch37/) that may affect your pipelines. These changes will come into effect in Ensembl Genomes release 43/Ensembl release 96, which are scheduled for April 2019. Here are the details, so that you can plan any required updates to existing scripts and pipelines ahead of the releases.
