Release 2.0
Sequence ID search:
Updates to DBD
9th Nov 2011 A new bacterial genome is added:
Pedobacter Heparinus.
30th Aug 2008 New fungal genomes: added TF predictions for 5 new fungal genomes:
Schizosaccharomyces octosporus yFS286, Verticillium dahliae VdLs.17, Verticillium albo-atrum VaMs.102, Schizosaccharomyces pombe 972h- and Aspergillus fumigatus A1163.
20th Aug 2008 Integrated transcription factor predictions for the Dictyostelium purpureum genome from the JGI.
The dictyostelids are a group of cellular slime molds, or social amoebae, which belong to the amoebozoa supergroup of eukaryotes that form a sister clade to the fungi and animals. Under normal growth conditions the dictyostelids take the individual amoeba form, but under starvation they from multicellular organisms. Further details.
18th Aug 2008 Added TF predictions for over 50 bacterial genomes from the NCBI.
Highlights include, the first genome to be sequenced from a novel bacterial phylum, comprising endosymbionts of cellulose-degrading termite gut protozoa (Endomicrobia) Elusimicrobium minutum Pei191, new genomes from the Verrucomicrobia phyla Akkermansia muciniphila ATCC BAA-835, Methylacidiphilum infernorum V4 and the Aquificae phyla Sulfurihydrogenibium sp. YO3AOP1, Hydrogenobaculum sp. Y04AAS1.
11th Aug 2008 Reclassified 8 domains.
Added 3 families to list of DBDs. From Pfam: added SpoVT_AbrB (PF04014), NAM (PF02365), Pencillinase (PF03965).
Removed 6 familes from list of DBDs. From Pfam: removed Bac_DnaA_C (PF08299), C1_4 (PF07975), and from SUPERFAMILY: Hemolysin expression modulating protein HHA superfamily (68990), Hypothetical protein F93 family (109674), Transcriptional regulator Rrf2 family (109699).
8th Aug 2008 Transcription factor predictions for new green algae Ostreococcus RCC809.
3rd July 2008 Transcription factor predictions for 2 new fungal genomes: Trichoderma atroviride and Cochliobolus heterostrophus.
20th June 2008 Loaded transcription factor predictions for microalgae Chlorella sp. NC64A.
3rd June 2008 Added 8 Eukaryotic genomes, and updated 12 drosophilid genomes.
Including several newly sequenced fungal strains such as the Chytridiomycota Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis JAM81.
12th May 2008 Added the transgenic papaya (Carica papaya) genome, and over 50 prokaryote genomes.
Highlights among the prokaryote genomes include the first genome from the Verrucomicrobia phyla (Opitutus terrae) of bacteria, and the first genome from the Korarchaeota phyla (Candidatus Korarchaeum cryptofilum) of archaea.
30th Apr 2008 Added the phytoplankton Emiliania huxleyi, which is of interest because of it's production of polyketides with antimicrobial, antifungal, antiparasitic, antitumor and agrochemical properties. Updated the beetle Tribolium castaneum assignments as analysis of the genome sequence recently became available [PubMed]. Updated the Schizosaccharomyces pombe genome.
28th Apr 2008 Major update of all Ensembl genomes, including new genomes: Horse and Orangutan.
11th Apr 2008 Loaded 2 new early assembly plant genomes: Glycine max (Soybean) and Zea mays (Maize).
31st Mar 2008 Added new plant genome from the JGI: Sorghum bicolor.
21st Feb 2008 Reclassified 1 domain: Added Copper-fist to list of DBDs.
18th Feb 2008 Added 2 new algae genomes from the JGI:
Micromonas sp. RCC299, Micromonas sp. CCMP490.
23rd Jan 2008 Added 3 fungal and 59 prokaryotic genomes.
10th Jan 2008 Added 1 plant and 7 fungal genomes:
