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 alga, Alpine rock-cress and Chinese cabbage), 5 new fungi species (Aspergillus glaucus, Candida albicans, Meyerozyma guilliermondii, Komagataella phaffii and Serendipita indica) and a few early branching eukaryotes (Plasmodium yoelii yoelii, Theileria annulata, Polysphondylium pallidum (strain ATCC 26659 / Pp 5 / PN500), Leptomonas seymouri, Salpingoeca rosetta (strain ATCC 50818 / BSB-021), Creolimax fragrantissima, Phytophthora 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.
