aLeaves databases based on Ensembl 76

It took more than half a year since the last update. At aLeaves, now you have access to a new set of databases including latest sequences from Ensembl release 76 announced just last week. The species newly included as a result of this update are below:

Papio anubis (Olive baboon) in Database 3 (non-human eutherians)

Alligator sinensis (Chinese alligator) & Poecilia formosa (Amazon molly) in Database 5 (non-mammalian vertebrates)

Onchocerca volvulus in Database 10 (nematodes)

I know that there are many more metazoan speices whose genome sequencing has been conducted, than covered at aLeaves, but basically I include only species whose predicted peptide sequences are available somewhere online, and if not in Ensembl, the products from the genome project should already be published. Still, my knowledge is not enough, so please let me know if you know any speices that fits this criteria.

Next update soon

I will include the sequences from the next Ensembl release (76) in the next update of aLeaves databases.

Previously, I announced that I would update them by the end of July, but please wait for a while for the Ensembl release 76 to be out.
