Added the newAstatotilapia calliptera PacBio genome assembly
This high quality genome assembly provides the reference for some of our latest analyses.
You will find the genome annotation and some experimental tracks under the fAstCal12 genome browser.

We are releasing a Variant Call File (VCF) for 73 Lake Malawi cichlid species
The VCF file contains genome-wide biallelic Single Nucleotide Polymorthism (SNP) variation for 134 individuals,
covering 73 species and all the major lineages of the Lake Malawi haplochromine cichlid radiation.
Further details with regards to the sample selection, methods and NCBI accessions for the raw genomic
data are available in this PDF that accompanies the release.
The VCF file is now available for download: [VCF
In addition, the new "malawiFilteredVCF" track has been added to the MetZeb1.1-prescreen
Metriaclima zebra genome browser.
This is a public release in advance of publication of our genome-wide analysis of this dataset.
It can be used without any restrictions for analyses concerning specific genomic region(s).
If a genome-wide analysis forms a major part of a manuscript to be submitted before we publish
on this dataset, we require the authors to contact us
to discuss how to recognise our contribution in generating, preserving and sharing this resource.

8 Species Cichlid/Teleost Conservation Track now available on MetZeb1.1-prescreen
After several months of CPU run-time and tens of thousands individual 'jobs' we are excited to
announce the release of an 8 species alignment on the MetZeb1.1-prescreen Metriaclima zebra Genome Browser.
This new Conservation track shows multiple alignments of 8 species and measurements of
evolutionary conservation using two methods (phastCons and phyloP) from the PHAST package.
For more information about the 8 species Conservation track, see its
