RefSeq release 215 is now available online, from the FTP site and through NCBI’s Entrez programming utilities, E-utilities.
This full release incorporates genomic, transcript, and protein data available as of November 7, 2022, and contains 335,372,031 records, including 244,583,657 proteins and sequences from 125,116 organisms. The release is provided in several directories as a complete dataset and also as divided by logical groupings. Continue reading “RefSeq Release 215” →
An updated dataset of human protein-coding regions from the Consensus Coding Sequence (CCDS) collaboration
Are you interested in a set of high-quality human coding regions (CDS) with equivalent annotation in NCBI’s RefSeq and EMBL-EBI’s (European Molecular Biology Laboratories-European Bioinformatics Institute) Ensembl annotations? Check out the new CCDS Release 24! This CCDS set was generated by comparing RefSeq Annotation Release 110 and Ensembl Release 108.
This update adds 2,746 new CCDS IDs and 237 new genes compared to the last human CCDS build (Release 22, 2018). CCDS Release 24 includes a total of 35,608 CCDS IDs that correspond to 19,107 genes, with 48,062 protein sequences from RefSeq and 47,762 from Ensembl.
The new CCDS release is available on FTP for bulk download and on the CCDS webpage in case you are looking for data on individual genes. Continue reading “CCDS Release 24” →
Are you interested in high quality genomic annotations for human and mouse? Check out the Consensus Coding Sequence (CCDS) project! Release 23 of the CCDS project is now available in Entrez Gene. This release compares NCBI’s Mus musculus annotation release 108 to Ensembl’s annotation release 98. This update adds 1,570 new CCDS records and 175 genes to the mouse CCDS dataset. In total, release 23 includes 27,219 CCDS records that correspond to 20,486 genes.

The Consensus Coding Sequence (CCDS) update that compares NCBI’s Homo sapiens annotation release 109 to Ensembl’s release 92 is now reflected in Gene. This update adds 894 new CCDS IDs, and adds 154 Genes into the human CCDS set. CCDS release 22 includes a total of 33,397 CCDS IDs that correspond to 19,033 GeneIDs.
The CCDS project is a collaborative effort to identify a core set of human and mouse protein coding regions that are consistently annotated and of high quality. The long-term goal is to support convergence towards a standard set of gene annotations.
