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 42 (January 2019)

This release of Ensembl Bacteria contains no major updates.

This release of Ensembl Fungi has a fresh mapping of pathogen-host interaction gene annotations from PHI-base. The genomes have remained the same as last release, apart from the inclusion of 92 transposable element genes to Saccharomyces cerevisiae from SGD and a revised SIFT and consequences predictions for variations in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This release also has a new run of InterProScan and updated BioMarts. Please note that data from release 40 has been archived at eg40-fungi.ensembl.org.

Release 42 of Ensembl Plants adds Arabidopsis halleri. The following species were updated:

Bug fixes:

  • A bug affecting computation of paralogues (described here) was fixed by the Compara team

This release of Ensembl Protists has a fresh mapping of pathogen-host interaction gene annotations from PHI-base, a new run of InterProScan and updated BioMarts.
