NCBI at Experimental Biology next week (Apr 6-9) in Orlando


We’ll be exhibiting next week at the 2019 Experimental Biology conference in Orlando. Stop by the NCBI booth (#446) (April 7-9, 9 AM – 4 PM) to meet NCBI staff,  to see live demonstrations of NCBI molecular and literature databases and tools, ask questions and provide feedback. We’ll also be showcasing important updates to BLAST, PubChem, and PubMed!

NCBI at the ACMG meeting in Seattle next week (April 2-6, 2019)


In about a week, NCBI staff will join GeneReviews® on their home turf, Seattle, at the Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting hosted by the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG). While there we will have an exhibit booth (#531) where you can meet our staff, get answers to your questions, and pick-up informative handouts on our various resources for clinical practice.

Also, be sure to visit our two posters on Friday, April 5 from 10:30 AM to 12 PM.

Matched Annotation by NCBI and EMBL-EBI (MANE): a new joint venture to define a set of representative transcripts for human protein-coding genes


The RefSeq project at the NCBI and the Ensembl/GENCODE project at EMBL-EBI have provided independent high-quality human reference gene datasets to biologists since the sequencing of the human genome.

Now we’re joining together on an exciting new project we’re calling Matched Annotation from the NCBI and EMBL-EBI or MANE, to provide a matched set of well-supported transcripts for human protein-coding genes and define one representative transcript for each gene. Both RefSeq and Ensembl will continue to provide a rich set of alternate transcripts per gene.
