New genome assemblies


Three new assemblies and their corresponding gene sets have been added this release for the Anopheles coluzzii Ngousso strain, Anopheles funestus and the Ixodes scapularis ISE6 cell line. The new assemblies for Anopheles coluzzii Ngousso strain and Ixodes scapularis ISE6 cell line are presented as alternate assemblies to the existing VectorBase assemblies, while the Anopheles funestus F3 assembly serves as a replacement for the older Anopheles funestus AfunF1 assembly. Full detals of the updates can be forund in the June release notes.
