13.8 million Inter-Homoeologous Variants (IHVs) in wheat called by alignments of the A,B and D component genomes where added as SNP markers

The Botrytis cinerea genome has been completely re-annotated by the community with the support of Ensembl Genomes. 42 community members (spread across 8 countries) were trained by Ensembl Genomes to use Web Apollo in this re-annotation effort leading to a new gene set comprising of 11,695 manually revised genes (PMID:26913498). This gene set is available on Ensembl Genomes (Botrytis cinerea).

What's New in Release 37 (September 2017)

No significant updates have been made for this release.

Release 37 includes a complete re-load of fungal species from the European Nucleotide Archive along with a few species updated manually. Non-coding RNA gene predictions are available for all species, along with updated biomarts and peptide features.

Cross references and protein domain annotations have been updated.

This release of Ensembl Plants adds one of the two recently sequenced Corchorus capsularis (jute) genomes (Nature 2017) and whole genome alignments between the latest Hordeum vulgare (barley) assembly and Oryza sativa (rice), summarised here, and Brachypodium distachyon, summarised here.

​New genomes have been loaded from INSDC, and included in compara. New 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 phenotypic information from PHI-base 4.3 have been added for phytopathogenic species.
