Check out the new Alliance release!

The new 7.1.0 version of the Alliance of Genome Resources (Alliance) was recently released. You can find harmonized data related to your favorite model organism together with other model organism data. Find details about this release here. We’d love to hear from you, so send us your comments and suggestions.

New Alliance release available

Check out the new Alliance release 7.0.0. To learn more about this release please see the release notes.

If you don’t already know about the Alliance of Genome Resources (Alliance), it is a consortium of 7 model organism databases (MODs) and the Gene Ontology (GO) Consortium whose goal is to provide an integrated view of their data to all biologists, clinicians and other interested parties. You can look at harmonized C. elegans data such as disease model annotations in the context of other species. You can find ortholog data easily right on a gene page. Note that we are in the process of transitioning data types from WormBase to the Alliance and building data displays for these data, so not all WormBase data is available at the Alliance yet.

Three new features added to SimpleMine

WormBase SimpleMine users can now batch-download chromosome coordinates and transcription factors within 2kb of promoter regions. When searching for interacting genes, there is a new option to exclude high-throughput interaction results.

We have also developed an instance of SimpleMine for the Alliance of Genome Resources for researchers to batch download essential gene information for worm, yeast, fly, Xenopus, zebrafish, mouse, rat, and human. Your feedback on our work is always appreciated! Please emailĀ help@wormbase.org.
