Introducing the UCSC Genome Browser Blog
We're excited to introduce a new
blog that will feature posts by
Genome Browser staff and guests. On the blog we'll be publishing in-depth information about
UCSC Genome Browser features, tools, projects and related topics that we hope people will
find both useful and interesting. We just published our inaugural post written by Jim Kent,
the UCSC Genome Browser Architect and PI, on the
2014 Ebola Epidemic.
If you have a suggestion for a blog post topic, please let us know via our

Genome Browser and Portal Released for the Ebola Virus
We are excited to announce the release of a Genome Browser and information portal for the
Jun. 2014 assembly of the Ebola virus (UCSC version eboVir3, GenBank accession
submitted by the Broad Institute. We have worked closely with the
Pardis Sabeti lab at
the Broad Institute and other Ebola experts throughout the world to incorporate
annotations that will be useful to those studying Ebola. Annotation tracks included in this
initial release include genes from NCBI, B- and T-cell epitopes from the IEDB, structural annotations from UniProt and a wealth of SNP data from the
by the Sabeti lab. This initial release also contains a 160-way alignment
comprising 158 Ebola virus sequences from various African outbreaks and 2 Marburg virus
You can find links to the Ebola virus Genome Browser and more information on the Ebola virus
itself on our Ebola Portal page.
Bulk downloads of the sequence and annotation data are available via the Genome
The Ebola virus (eboVir3) browser annotation tracks were generated by UCSC and
collaborators worldwide. See the
Credits page for a detailed
list of the organizations and individuals who contributed to this release and
the conditions for use of these data.
