Due to a major loss of cooling incident at one of the EMBL-EBI data centres, there was reduced Ensembl functionality between Saturday 2nd February and Wednesday 6th February.
However, as of Wednesday 6th February, all Ensembl and Ensembl Genomes services have now been restored and are working as normal.
If you encounter any further issues, please report them to the Ensembl Helpdesk.
Thank you for your understanding and patience while we worked to fully restore our services.
We’ve just released Ensembl Genomes 42, with new and updated plant species, including soya and tomato, as well as three new species for Ensembl Metazoa.
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.
We’ve been tending the Ensembl Plants garden with great care, have cultivated several new species and updated a number of genome assemblies, including a new chromosome-level wheat genome from IWGSC. The protist team have also been busy and are proud to announce an updated assembly for Leishmania major.
Read on to find out more about these exciting new updates and more in this new release of Ensembl Genomes!
This month we’re meeting Paul Kersey, who is the Ensembl Genomes team leader.
We are pleased to announce the latest release of Ensembl Genomes (EG!39). Highlights include new genomes (Stalk-eyed fly and Waterflea) and a polyploid view for Wheat. Read on to find out more about new data and features:
