We’re pleased to announce the WS288 release of WormBase. This release includes additional single cell expression data and numerous small quality-of-life improvements to the website. As always, please send any questions or comments to email@example.com. We appreciate your feedback.
Check out the latest new release (5.3.0) of the Alliance of Genome Resources (Alliance) which includes two new species–Xenopus laevis and Xenopus tropocalis and data refreshes for many data types. The Alliance features standardized and harmonized views for data such as disease models, Gene Ontology (GO), orthology, genetic interactions and many more, for a total of 9 species including C. elegans, human and the two new frog species. Learn more about this release via the 5.3.0 Release Notes.
WormBase build WS285 contains an analysis refresh of the Brugia malayi genome, so – expect, for example, new and better homologs and expression data. Did you know that WormBase contains 9 species in addition to C. elegans? All of these species have unique manually curated data and gene models.
WormBase regularly gets data from leading stock centers such as the Caenorhabditis Genetics Center (CGC) and National Bioresource Project (NBRP) . Release WS285 contains an extra-large update, with more than 1,500 new strains imported from the CGC. Perhaps there is one that is the perfect study object for you?
