What's New in Release 51
- maize updated to Zm-B73-REFERENCE-NAM-5.0 assembly and annotation in collaboration with Gramene. The variation data was remapped and agpv3_gramene, agpv4_gramene and curated_genes lifter-over.
- Musa acuminata updated to Musa_acuminata_v2 assembly and annotation from https://banana-genome-hub.southgreen.fr
- moss Physcomitrella patens renamed to Physcomitrium patens
- cross-references for Arabidopsis thaliana recomputed
Ensembl Rapid Release
New assemblies with gene and protein annotation every two weeks.
Note: species that already exist on this site will continue to be updated with the full range of annotations.
The Ensembl Rapid Release website provides annotation for recently produced, publicly available vertebrate and non-vertebrate genomes from biodiversity initiatives such as Darwin Tree of Life, the Vertebrate Genomes Project and the Earth BioGenome Project.
Rapid Release news on our blog
Ensembl Plants hosts the latest wheat assembly from the IWGSC (RefSeq v1.0), including:
- The IWGSC RefSeq v1.1 gene annotation, with links to wheat-expression.com and KnetMiner
- 14 wheat cultivars from the 10+ genome project
- Alignment of 98,270 high confidence genes from the TGACv1 annotation.
- Axiom 35K, 820K SNP arrays from CerealsDB, including QTL links in selected cases and Linkage Disequilibrium display. See QTL example here.
- EMS-induced mutations from sequenced TILLING populations of Cadenza (coding regions) and Kronos (coding regions and promoters).
- Inter-Homeologous Variants (IHVs) between the A, B and D genome components.
- Chromosome specific KASP markers were added from the Nottingham BBSRC Wheat Research Centre.
- Whole genome alignments to rice, brachypodium and barley.
- Assembly-to-assembly mapping and gene ID mapping to the previous TGAC v1 assembly, archived at eg37-plants.ensembl.org
- Polyploid view enabled, allowing users to view alignments among multiple wheat components simultaneously
- Durum wheat 35K, 90K, 820K and TaBW280K variants
