3/20/2007    New Aspergillus Comparative Website

This new website incorporates new features for comparative analysis:
  • Incorporates Aspergillus genomes sequenced by other centers, in addition to A. nidulans and A. terreus.
  • Synteny Map and Dotplot allow you to explore synteny across the Aspergillus species.
  • Gene Family Search allows you to search precomputed gene families by genome membership, total size, and matching text.

This annotated release presents:

  • A predicted protein gene set of 10,406 genes
  • Protein BLAST databases
  • Precomputed results of BlastX and HMMer Analyses
  • Alternative proteins predicted by various gene callers (Genewise, FgeneSH, GeneID)
  • tRNA predictions
  • rRNA predictions
  • Search and visualizations for all the features

3/7/2006    A. nidulans Release 4

Release 4 represents an extensive manual revision of the gene predictions made in Release 3 by annotators at TIGR. See Gene Finding for details on this process.

This release of these new annotations includes:

  • A predicted protein gene set (10,701 genes).
  • A mapping of the probe sequences used on the NIAID/PFGRC oligonucleotide glass slide microarray have been incorporated as the "Oligo Probe" feature, which can be searched in Find Features and visualized using the Feature Map or Argo browsers.
  • BLAST databases for the entire assembly, as well as individal gene and protein predictions
  • Precomputed results of BlastX and HMMer Analyses
  • Alternative proteins predicted by various gene callers (Genewise, FgeneSH,FgeneSH+, GeneID)
  • tRNA predictions
  • Search and visualizations for all the features
  • Search and download a particular region of the genome assembly
  • Downloads of the consensus sequence and additional files for the genome assembly and gene predictions
  • Links between gene predictions published in previous releases

9/30/2005    A. terreus Initial assembly release

The initial release of our 11.05X sequence assembly of the Aspergillus terreus assembly. The sequence traces from the Broad Institute sequencing can be downloaded from the NCBI trace repository.

Important information about this release can be found here.

This initial release allows:

  • BLAST searches against our 11.05X genome assembly
  • Downloads of the consensus sequence and additional files for the genome assembly
  • Search and download a particular region of the genome assembly

There will be a second upcoming release containing the annotation of predicted genes and other genomic features.

10/31/2003    A. nidulans Release 3.1

Names for our autocalled genes have been updated in accordance to new naming guidelines from NCBI. Only the gene names were changed - no genes were added or deleted, and no changes to the gene models were made. A total of 3524 genes were renamed.

6/20/2003    A. nidulans Release 3

Release 3 consists of 9541 predicted genes. Predictions incorporated 6,300 unique ESTs which were provided by Rolf Prade and Bruce Roe at Oklahoma State University.

2/28/2003    A. nidulans Release 2

13X genome assembly available for download and BLAST search. Aspergillus nidulans physical map with 95% of the assembly anchored to the genetic map, of which 94% are ordered and orientated.
