BioGPS Spotlight on the Sheep Gene Expression Atlas

In BioGPS, there are a number of Intermine–based model organism plugins (and to a lesser extent model organism data sets) which allow users to explore gene expression in organisms typically studied in biomedical research. Model organisms such as mice, rats, flies, worms, zebra fish, etc. have well-annotated genomes and a lot of well-established tools for further exploring and contributing...

Functional gene constraint scores from ExAC now available from MyGene.info

With the publication of a new paper in Nature, the Exome Aggregation Consortium (ExAC) has received some much deserved attention on their open data/open access practice. ExAC variant annotation data has been available for awhile through MyVariant.info; however, their functional gene constraint data doesn't fit well into MyVariant.info model. Speaking of ExAC annotations in MyVariant.info, check...
