The UCSC Genome Browser Database: 2008 update.

Nucleic acids research | Jan 15, 2008

The University of California, Santa Cruz, Genome Browser Database (GBD) provides integrated sequence and annotation data for a large collection of vertebrate and model organism genomes. Seventeen new assemblies have been added to the database in the past year, for a total coverage of 19 vertebrate and 21 invertebrate species as of September 2007. For each assembly, the GBD contains a collection of annotation data aligned to the genomic sequence. Highlights of this year's additions include a 28-species human-based vertebrate conservation annotation, an enhanced UCSC Genes set, and more human variation, MGC, and ENCODE data. The database is optimized for fast interactive performance with a set of web-based tools that may be used to view, manipulate, filter and download the annotation data. New toolset features include the Genome Graphs tool for displaying genome-wide data sets, session saving and sharing, better custom track management, expanded Genome Browser configuration options and a Genome Browser wiki site. The downloadable GBD data, the companion Genome Browser toolset and links to documentation and related information can be found at: http://genome.ucsc.edu/.

ENCODE - Encyclopedia of DNA Elements

Encyclopedia of DNA elements consisting of a comprehensive parts list of functional elements in the human genome, including elements that act at the protein and RNA levels, and regulatory elements that control cells and circumstances in which a gene is active, that is freely available as as a fundamental information resource for all biomedical researchers. ENCODE enables the scientific and medical communities to interpret the role of the human genome in biology and disease. ENCODE provides identification of common cell types to facilitate integrative analysis and a new experimental technologies based on high-throughput sequencing. ENCODE data are available for the entire human genome. All ENCODE data are free and available for immediate use.
