What's New in Release 36 (June 2017)

No significant updates have been made for this release. Gene families have been updated to include an additional 142 genomes from release 35.

Gene symbols for 1-to-1 orthologs from Saccharomyces cerevisiae to Botrytis cinerea have been added in this release along with updated BioMarts and PHI-base 4.3 annotations.

RNA gene annotation has been added or updated for 37 metazoan species, using a new algorithm that aims to minimise false positive results by applying taxonomic (and other) filters. Cross references to other resources (such as UniProt and RefSeq) have been updated, and three new sources have been used to annotate protein domains, including MobiDB, a database of intrinsically disordered regions.

This release of Ensembl Plants includes an updated version of the Hordeum vulgare (barley) genome, the biggest diploid genome yet sequenced (Nature 2017). Additionally we have moved to the latest 1001 variation data set for Arabidopsis thaliana covering more than 10 million variant loci across 1,135 samples (Cell 2016). For Triticum aestivum (wheat), 80,829 variation markers from the iSelect 90k array and 13.8 million Inter-Homoeologous Variants (IHVs) have been added. Chloroplast and mitochondrial components (including gene annotations) were imported from ENA.

‚ÄčNew automatic ncRNA alignments have been added across all protists, using a new algorithm that aims to minimise false positive results by applying taxonomic (and other) filters. Cross references to other resources (such as UniProt and RefSeq) have been updated. Updated PHI-base 4.3 annotations have been across for phytopathogenic species.
