Check out the new chapter in WormBook, GENETICS, ‘Biology of the Caenorhabditis elegans germline stem cell system‘ by Jane Hubbard and Tim Schedl.
WormBase will be unavailable for approximately one hour on Thursday, November 28, 2019 starting at 12:00 PM ET (UTC -4). We apologize in advance for the disruption and plan to have service restored as quickly as possible.
Status: 12:08 PM ET, upgrade complete.
Please note that the WS273 version of WormBase is live on our website. The release notes for this version contain a detailed report of the various entities (eg. gene, allele) and the number of sequence and biological annotations.
Some of the highlights are:
C.elegans Nanopore data has been integrated and is being used to improve UTR annotation. Further work on improving our automatic transcript annotation is ongoing.
This release includes a few hundred gene splits in Pristionchus pacificus predicted by the Sommer lab based on IsoSeq analysis. More will be included in future releases.
When you write a paper, wherever possible cite the original, primary papers so the authors get credit. If you have used data amalgamated by WormBase, then please cite WormBase with the release version.
