Giulietta (Ensembl)

The latest update of the Ensembl Genome Brower and associated databases occurred 13 June, 2007 (release 45). This release was coordinated with the publication of the ENCODE project in the journal Nature. The first stage of this project focused on an in-depth view of 1% of the genome, contributing to a set of regulatory features that has now been incorporated into Ensembl, accessible in ContigView.

BioMart 0.6 has just been released, including an improved layout and response times for result viewing. In addition, the query can be exported in Perl API format
via the new ‘Perl’ button.

Those are the major updates at this time.
