355 new genomes now available in Ensembl Fungi

From this release forward, all fungal 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) is available in Ensembl Fungi. The release now consists of a total of 408 genomes, of which 355 have been taken from the archives and 53 taken directly from other sources. The new genomes have been functionally annotated with InterPro entries and GO terms using InterProScan v51, and manually curated GO terms have been projected from Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Schizosaccharomyces pombe to 1:1 orthologues in other species.

The Fungal Compara has been extended and now includes all previously included genomes and 221 from the new imports, selected to ensure each species is represented by at least one genome. Representative sequences have been selected by date of submission to the INSDC (the earliest sequences submitted 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.

PhytoPath

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.

BBSRC Logo PhytoPath is funded by the BBSRC.
