Updated assembly for barley

The barley assembly in Ensembl Plants release 24 has been extended and improved with anchoring data from high marker density population sequencing (POPSEQ). With this, an additional 626,000 WGS contigs which were formerly unassigned or assigned to chromosome arms are now anchored to barley chromosomes. Anchoring these contigs assigns chromosomal positions to an additional 760 Mb of sequence, and 1,025 genes.

Ensembl Plants is developed in coordination with other plant genomics and bioinformatics groups via the EBI's role in the transPLANT consortium. The transPLANT project is funded by the European Commission within its 7th Framework Programme, under the thematic area "Infrastructures", contract number 283496.

Wheat genomics resources are developed as part of our involvement in the consortium Triticeae Genomics For Sustainable Agriculture. Barley genomics resources are funded through the UK barley genome sequencing project. Both projects are funded by the BBSRC.
