Ensembl Genomes Archive Sites Now Available

Ensembl Genomes now has a new set of archive sites from July 2018. These can be found at the following URLs.






The archive sites allow researchers to access data from old releases via our web-based tools, and additionally will be able to display track hubs containing alignments and features located on older versions of genome assemblies that have since been upgraded in the live site. Archive sites will be searchable and BioMarts will be available where they were produced for the site when live. Schema and API versions for archive sites will be the same as when the data was released.

What's New in Release 44 (June 2019)

Release 44 of EnsemblBacteria has an updated pan-taxonomic compara (which includes key bacterial species). There are no other significant changes from the last release.

Release 44 of Ensembl Fungi has a new run of InterProScan and updated BioMarts. There are no significant changes to the genomes apart from a minor update to Saccharomyces cerevisiae (removal of the suffix _mRNA from protein IDs).

Release 44 of Ensembl Metazoa adds three new species and updates on three worms.

Release 44 of Ensembl Plants adds common liverwort (Marchantia polymorpha).

The following species were updated:

This bumper release of Ensembl Protists contains a fresh import from the ENA bringing in 68 new genomes including Phytophthora megakarya, a crucial oomycete plant pathogen causing black pod disease in cocoa trees, and the ice-loving diatom Fragilariopsis cylindrus CCMP1102 found in Arctic and Antarctic sea water. We also have a new peptide compara, a new run of InterProScan and updated BioMarts.
