RNA-Seq Studies for Plants
New track hubs have been created for more than 900 public RNA-Seq studies, totaling more than 16,000 tracks across 35 plant species (read more).
Looking for a plant protein? There is now a new, fast protein sequence search in Ensembl Plants, using the Hidden Markov Models (using the search tool HMMER). Just click on the 'HMMER' link in the Ensembl Plants banner (or go directly from here), and add your query sequence in plain text or FASTA format.
Pre-release of the New Bread Wheat Genome
The new genome assembly of Triticum aestivum cv. Chinese Spring, generated by The Genome Analysis Centre, Norwich as part of the BBSRCs Triticeae Genomics for Sustainable Agriculture project is now available in the Ensembl Plants pre-site. The assembly has a scaffold N50 of 88 Kbp and a total length of 13.4 Gbp in contigs greater than 500 bp. A total of 98,974 genes (99% of the total) annotated on the previous assembly have been located on the new assembly. RNA-Seq data from three different transcriptomics studies across 18 different samples have been aligned and the corresponding transcript assemblies are browsable as additional tracks. Existing variation data (Bristol SNPs) was also projected to the new assembly and can be searched for and viewed in the genome browser.
Data can be searched by gene identifier or by BLAST sequence search. Further annotation will be progressively available over the coming months.
The main Ensembl Plants Wheat Site continues to offer a more mature set of annotation on an assembly comprising the IWGSC Chromosome Survey Sequence data (IWGSC et al. 2015) supplemented by the chromosome 3B assembly (Choulet et al. 2015).
Ensembl Plants is developed in coordination with other plant genomics and bioinformatics groups via the EBI's role in the transPLANT consortium. The transPLANT project is funded by the European Commission within its 7th Framework Programme, under the thematic area "Infrastructures", contract number 283496.
Wheat genomics resources are developed as part of our involvement in the consortium Triticeae Genomics For Sustainable Agriculture. Barley genomics resources are funded through the UK barley genome sequencing project. Both projects are funded by the BBSRC.
