New OMA Browser Release (Dec 2017) with 2103 species

We have just released the latest update of the OMA Browser. It is the 22th release covering 2103 genomes.

In this release we added 15 new eukaryotes, i.e. three new plants (Picoplanktonic green algaAlpine rock-cress and Chinese cabbage), 5 new fungi species (Aspergillus glaucusCandida albicansMeyerozyma guilliermondiiKomagataella phaffii and Serendipita indica) and a few early branching eukaryotes (Plasmodium yoelii yoeliiTheileria annulataPolysphondylium pallidum (strain ATCC 26659 / Pp 5 / PN500)Leptomonas seymouriSalpingoeca rosetta (strain ATCC 50818 / BSB-021)Creolimax fragrantissimaPhytophthora nicotianae and Phytophthora parasitica). We also added a few bacteria and archaea species to this release and  we updated some of the common model organisms. You can find a detailed list of all the covered species on our website (http://omabrowser.org/oma/release/).

The new release comes also with a few improvements and enhancements such as a scalable, interactive viewer for hierarchical orthologous groups; protein domain annotations and domain-based links between orthologous groups; new functionality to retrieve phylogenetic marker genes for a subset of species of interest; a new synteny dot plot viewer; and an overhaul of the programmatic access (REST API and semantic web). Read about the new features in our latest OMA Browser publication.
