The 284th version of WormBase has been released, check out the release notes here which give you details about the data, data files and numbers in WS284.
For miRNA fanatics out there, we have added 90 miRNA gene clusters from MirGeneDB to the C. elegans annotation in release WS284. This complements the 20 clusters (800 objects) which were already there, making the WormBase miRNA collection possibly the most complete in the world. You can access the miRNAs through the web pages https://wormbase.org/search/all/miRNA, or through JBrowse tracks “Curated Genes(noncoding)” e. g. And don’t forget WormBase also has an impressive collection of other non-coding RNAs as well; circRNAs, lincRNAs, piRNAs, snRNA, snoRNAs, precursors and many more. Happy investigating!
