A brand new regulatory build for the human GRCh38 and GRCh37 assemblies was released in Ensembl 95 earlier this week. The new regulatory build incorporates data for 55 new and 38 updated epigenomes from the ENCODE project. So what are the differences from the previous regulatory build?
The latest version of Ensembl, release 95, is out. This release brings a brand new human regulatory build for GRCh37 and GRCh38, incorporating new data from the ENCODE and Roadmap epigenomics project, plus an update to the mouse GENCODE gene set. We’ve also got a whole host of new vertebrate species, updated genome assemblies for some important agricultural species and the brand new protein structure viewer.
We’re planning to release the next versions of Ensembl and Ensembl Genomes in December.
We’ve got some exciting new genomes, including polar bear, as well as updated genome assemblies for three important agricultural species. We’ve also got a new regulatory build for the human GRCh38 and GRCh37 assemblies and a brand new protein structure variation view.
Today we are meeting Irina, who joined the Variation team earlier this year. She talks about how she came to Ensembl, her interests, experience so far and more.
This month we’re meeting Paul Kersey, who is the Ensembl Genomes team leader.
