New manually-curated gene set for Botrytis cinerea
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).

- Updated phenotypic annotation from PHI-base
- Updated protein features and GO annotations
- Updated peptide comparative and pan-taxonomic genomics
- GO term projection from S. cerevisiae and S. pombe to orthologues in other species
Ensembl Fungi is a genome browser for fungal genomes. A majority of these genoms are taken from the databases of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (the European Nucleotide Archive at the EBI, GenBank at the NCBI, and the DNA Database of Japan); in some cases, the annotation has been taken directly from the websites of the data generators.
Data can be visualised through the Ensembl genome browser and accessed programmatically via our Perl and RESTful APIs. Data is also accessible through public MySQL databases and our FTP site containing full data dumps in FASTA, EMBL, GTF, GFF3, JSON and RDF formats.
