The genome annotation data available in Ensembl Bacteria was extensively updated in Ensembl 102/ Ensembl Genomes 49Continue reading
Ensembl 102 (and Ensembl Genomes 49) are due to be released in October 2020. As with all releases, we cannot guarantee that anything listed here will make it into the final release.Continue reading
We’re pleased to announce the release of Ensembl 101, and the corresponding release of Ensembl Genomes 48. The highlights of this release include an update of the human gene annotation and new population frequency data along with 39 new genomes including a new sheep reference and crop cultivars.Continue reading
The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic presents a serious challenge to healthcare, economies and societies across the globe, one that has demanded an unprecedented scientific response. Projects across multiple disciplines are now re-directing their usual analytical efforts to meet this challenge head-on, and GENCODE are no exception. Our project produces human gene annotation, and we’re contributing to this scientific effort by re-examining human genes that may be relevant to viral infection and COVID-19 disease. We hope this work will support further research along these lines. For example, updated gene annotation could benefit studies to find disease-linked variants in patients with severe COVID-19 symptoms, including work by Genomics England and others.Continue reading
Update: The Ensembl and Ensembl Genomes services have now been restored following this period of reduced functionality.Continue reading
We’re pleased to announce the release of Ensembl 99, and the corresponding release of Ensembl Genomes 46. Along with updates of human gene annotation and variation data, we have a menagerie of new and updated vertebrate species in Ensembl plus a whole set of new plants, mosquitos and flies in Ensembl Genomes.
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.
