MyGene.info added mm9 support for mouse genes

The default genomic locations of mouse genes from MyGene.info are always based on the current genome assembly of GRCm38 (or mm10). Although mm10 has been released in early 2012, there are still needs today to query gene annotations based on GRCm37 (or mm9), the previous mouse genome assembly, in order to handle some legacy data. Just like what we did for human genes a while ago, supporting hg19...

MyGene.info moved to GRCh38/hg38 for human genes with hg19 still supported

GRCh38 (or hg38) is the latest human genome assembly, which was released almost a year ago. MyGene.info is now moved to support GRCh38 by default for human genes, but the data (including queries) based on previous assembly version (GRCh37/hg19) are still supported. Here are some details about this change: genomic_pos field is now based on hg38 This field contains the genomic location of the...
