Ensembl 104 and Ensembl Genomes 51 are out! This release features updates to human and mouse genes, GRCh37 variation and regulation, new assemblies and variation for vertebrates, new plant species and a large update of the available metazoa data. We also said bye-bye to clone-based gene names and welcomed the new Ensembl Canonical transcripts.Continue reading
We identified that the GRCh37 BLAT tool was incorrectly using a GRCh38 reference file for all queries performed between 21st January and 20th February 2020.Continue reading
Following our consultation on simplifying our GRCh37 services, we have decided to remove all support for non-human data from our dedicated GRCh37 database from release 100 onwards in early 2020. This will impact the website at grch37.ensembl.org, the REST server at grch37.rest.ensembl.org and the database at ensembldb.ensembl.org:3337. Non-human data will still be supported on the e75.ensembl.org archive.
In response to feedback during consultation, access to the full data currently provided by the existing GRCh37 REST services will also be made available for at least a year.
Please see our longer post for more details.
We will make changes to the directory layouts of both the Ensembl Genomes FTP server (ftp://ftp.ensemblgenomes.org/pub/) and the Ensembl GRCh37 FTP server (ftp://ftp.ensemblorg.ebi.ac.uk/pub/grch37/) that may affect your pipelines. These changes will come into effect in Ensembl Genomes release 43/Ensembl release 96, which are scheduled for April 2019. Here are the details, so that you can plan any required updates to existing scripts and pipelines ahead of the releases.
