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.
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’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.
