What's New in Release 46

Did you know...?

Ensembl Genomes REST Service To access Ensembl Genomes data from any programming language, try our REST service. For full documentation including examples from a wide range of languages, visit http://rest.ensemblgenomes.org

  • Genomes
    • EnsemblFungi currently has 1014 genomes in total
    • No new or updated genomes from last release
  • Updated data
    • Updated protein features for all species using InterProScan with version 75 of InterPro
    • Updated BioMarts for all gene and variation data
    • Updated pan-taxonomic compara (which includes key fungal species)
  • Fixed data
    • A few gene names that were missing for S. cerevisiae have been reinstated

Come learn about Fungal Pathogen genomics!

Our next annual course on fungal pathogen genomics will be in May 2020. This course brings together bioinformaticians, biologists, clinicians and computer scientists from around the world wanting to use fungal data resources like Ensembl Fungi, FungiDB, SGD/CGD and JGI/MycoCosm. Come join us! Application and bursary deadline is 27th February 2020. See details and registration.

Join the Zymoseptoria tritici gene annotation team!

The gene set for Zymoseptoria tritici, a wheat plant pathogen causing septoria leaf blotch, is currently under review by a team of Z. tritici researchers. This is a collaborative effort supported by EnsemblFungi with the aim of consolidating and improving the existing gene sets. If you would like to get involved, please contact Marc-Henri Lebrun from the National Institute of Agricultural Research (INRA) in France (marc-henri.lebrun@inra.fr) or Ensembl Fungi (helpdesk@ensemblgenomes.org) to get started.

Ensembl Fungi

Ensembl Fungi is a browser for fungal genomes. A majority of these 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.

Ensembl Genomes is developed by EMBL-EBI and is powered by the Ensembl software system for the analysis and visualisation of genomic data. For details of our funding please click here.
