More new genomes now available in Ensembl Protists
From release 27 release onwards, all protist genomes whose sequence and annotation has been completed and submitted to the the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (i.e. the ENA, GenBank and DDBJ databases) are now available in Ensembl Protists. The release now consists of a total of over 150 genomes, of which over 100 have been taken directly from the INSDC archives and the remainder taken from other sources. The new genomes have been functionally annotated with InterPro entries and GO terms using InterPro v53.
The Protist Compara has been extended and now includes all 32 previously included genomes and 57 of the new imports, selected to ensure each species is covered by at least one genome. Representative sequences have been selected by date of submission to INSDC (i.e. earlier submissions have been preferentially included).
Note: The new genomes are not currently available through BioMart - this will be addressed in a future release. New genomes are also stored in MySQL collection databases, which may require changes to data access in some cases.
EMBL-EBI and Rothamsted Research have jointly released the PhytoPath portal, a joint project bringing together Ensembl Genomes with PHI-base, a community-curated resource describing the role of genes in pathogenic infection. PhytoPath provides access to genomic and phentoypic data from fungal and oomycete plant pathogens, and has enabled a considerable increase in the coverage of phytopathogen genomes in Ensembl Fungi and Ensembl Protists.
PhytoPath also provides enhanced searching of the PHI-base resource as well as the fungi and protists in Ensembl Genomes.
|PhytoPath is funded by the BBSRC.|
